Missionary Cooperative Plan (MCP)

The Missionary Cooperative Plan (MCP) is an archdiocesan cooperative program that plays a vital role in sharing with the faithful of the Archdiocese of Washington about the worldwide evangelistic mission of the Church and how they can support the missions. This year sixteen missions were selected and will make appeals in 53 parishes of the Archdiocese.


These resources are available to help missionaries raise funds for their needs.
