Welcome to the Resources for Parishes page, and thank you for your hospitality toward the mission group that is assigned to your parish. Below you will find resources to help you with the mission appeal process. As always, if you need assistance or have questions, please call us at 414-758-2280 and we will be happy to assist you.
General Information and Parish Preference Form
The Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP) is an annual opportunity for mission congregations, lay organizations and mission dioceses to personally appeal for prayer and financial support from Catholics of the U.S. Additionally, MCP provides an opportunity to be educated 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. World Mission Ministries' Society for the Propagation of the Faith Office manages and facilitates these appeals in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
As determined by the Archbishop, all parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee are expected to welcome a missionary as part of the MCP each year.
In order to ensure a mutually convenient appeal process for parishes and mission groups, before we choose and assign mission groups to parishes, we ask that a parish representative fill out the Parish Preference Form. This gives parishes an opportunity to tell us their unique needs regarding the appeal process. The form also allows for feedback on the previous year's appeal.
