This is a domestic anti-poverty social justice program of the U.S. Catholic bishops which seeks to break the cycle of poverty by educating for justice and providing funding to empower the poor.

St Paul's Meal Ministry
One way that CCM responds to the call of Jesus is to serve the poor. Once a month, we prepare, serve, and share a meal and God's love with our downtown neighbors. This is done through the Justice Ministries of St. Paul's Episcopal Church located in the inner-city of Newport News.
