The Martha and Mary Maternity House is an Orthodox Christian Maternity Home for pregnant women in need of support. We are the fulfillment of a long-held dream of the members of Orthodox Christians for Life - Chicago, and we are a ministry of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago.
Our Pan-Orthodox Board of Directors operates under the guidance of His Grace Bishop Demetrios of Mokissos, Chancellor of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago, with the solid support of our beloved hierarchs across all Orthodox Jurisdictions.
We took occupancy of our house on November 1, 2015, in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. After completing final preparations, our first "daughter" moved into the House on April 1, 2016.
