Mission Cooperation Plan

Collection Request
3 Year Cycle

 

MCP is an annual program that gives mission causes an opportunity to educate about God’s work among the poor and to raise funds for the building up of the Church in mission territories, typically during weekend liturgies. Instead of assigning a cause to each parish each year, in this archdiocese we run a 3-year cycle: asking a parish to accept a mission cause in Year One; to accept Maryknoll in Year Two; in Year Three no assignment is made but a parish may request one.
