We have a responsibility to respond to the missionary needs of the worldwide Church. Each year, parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago are assigned a mission group as part of the Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP) summer appeal.
MCP donations are used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through primary evangelization, as well as to promote and support vocations, faith formation and catechesis, to build churches, seminaries and schools. Missionaries also use some of these funds in direct-service projects such as the building of clinics, hospitals, orphanages, and women’s shelters. This “mission cooperation” of bringing together missionaries and local communities helps to deepen our understanding of our baptismal duty to evangelize the world and bring people to Christ.
