Christian Concern Committee

 

Immaculate Heart of Mary's Christian Concern Committee (CCC), which was
established in1967, is an outreach ministry that helps the needy in Los Alamos
and Northern New Mexico. The CCC oversees the distribution of funds donated
in separate collections each quarter from the IHM Parish community.

The "total" amount of funds collected goes straight to the ministry.

The donations help with food, medicine, doctor bills, utility payments, rent
and other financial obligations for those who may be in a short term crisis or
for those who are struggling with longer term issues.
Referrals are accepted
from thirty-three approved social services agencies.  Preference is given to
members of IHM parish.

Donations for CCC are accepted throughout the year, in addition to the more
formal quarterly special collections made with the yellow envelopes.

 It is because of the generosity of the IHM Parish Community that the Christian
Concern Committee can meet the needs of those in crisis.

ministry.
