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) is now available.

If you have made application since 2021 your organization should have an MCP number. If not, please contact the mission office at MCP@dio.org

All correspondence with our office must use this email address. Thank you.

Please send any supporting documents to MCP@dio.org. Include your MCP number that is used on your application. Thank you.
