Our Catholic faith calls us to serve others, especially the underprivelaged, the poor, and the marginalized. CCM answers this call to live out our faith by assisting those that need our help, locally and globally. Through our various service projects, you can:
- Learn about social issues that impact you, your community, and the Church.
- Understand how you can help address or solve these issues.
- Challenge yourself by stepping outside your comfort zone.
- Make new friends and have fun while making a difference.
- Grow in your faith through interaction with people of different races, ages, cultures and life experiences.
