Missionary Cooperative Plan (MCP)

The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois has long been instrumental in joining with the universal Catholic Church in our support of the missions.  Each year, in cooperation with the Missionary Cooperative Program of the Pontifical Mission Society, we welcome missionaries from dioceses around the globe to visit our parishes in an effort to educate our people about work in their local Church, as well as give us the opportunity to participate in their mission work by requesting the support of prayer and financial assistance in order to meet their needs. In this way, every parish has an opportunity to be part of this global work.

The application for the 2024 Missionary Cooperative Plan (MCP) has now closed.

Please send all correspondence to our office to MCP@dio.org. Thank you.

The application for MCP 2025 will be available in October 2024.
