The Outreach Ministries are dedicated to St. Maria of Paris, a Russian nun who lived in Paris during World War II, and who looked after the poor and destitute of the city as well as saving Jewish children from the Nazis. She finally sacrificed her life in the Nazi gas chamber to save the life of a young mother. To read more about Mother Maria, please see here.

The Mother Maria of Paris Outreach Ministries consists of the many different ministries to which the Church as the Body of Christ is called. We look at the poor, homeless, downtrodden of society as our neighbor and try to be a neighbor to him or her. 

The Ministries, under the leadership of Elena Newman, has accomplished a good deal. We have formed a relationship with the Concord Coalition Against Homelessness, and have spearheaded the Blessing Bags with needed items, especially toiletries, for the homeless who beg at intersections; people are encouraged to keep a supply of bags in the car to hand to those at intersections. 

If you would like to be a part of the Outreach Ministries, please contact Elena Newman at enewman90x0@hotmail.com or at 603-988-5450.
