Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP)

Since 1954, The Society for the Propagation of the Faith office (SPOF) in Milwaukee, on behalf of the archdiocese and the archbishop, has facilitated the Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP).  

The Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP) is:

  • an annual chance for mission congregations, lay organizations, and mission dioceses to personally appeal for prayer and financial support from Catholics of the U.S.
  • an opportunity for parishioners to learn about what is happening in the mission field today. It connects the local church with the global Church and allows us to realize our baptismal call.

To this end, as determined by the Archbishop, all parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee are required to welcome a missionary as part of the MCP each year - sharing the Good News and broadening our collective understanding of the Global Church.

The Society for the Propagation of the Faith (SPOF) Office (part of World Mission Ministries) manages and facilitates these appeals in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The SPOF Office reviews mission group applications and evaluates parish needs to assign the mission groups to the parishes for annual appeals.

Welcome to the Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP) page. Below you will find resources for missionaries, parishes and parishioners about MCP.  If you have questions, please email us at wmo@archmil.org
