Immaculate Heart of Mary's Christian Concern Committee (CCC), which was established in 1967, 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. Donations can also be made on-line:
It is because of the generosity of the IHM Parish Community that the Christian Concern Committee can meet the needs of those in crisis. See the CCC Financial Report to see how your contributions will be used.
