2020 MCP Information and Guidelines for Parishes

Thank you in advance for your hospitality toward the mission group that will be 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 703-525-1300 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 groups, lay organizations and mission dioceses to personally appeal for prayer and financial support from Catholics of the U.S. Additionally,the 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.  The Arlington Mission Office manages and facilitates these appeals in the Diocese of Arlington.

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.
