The Missionary Cooperation Appeal (MCP) helps missionary organizations around the world appeal to Catholics for financial support. In the Diocese of Green Bay, 38 groups are invited to make missionary appeals in each of our parishes. These missionaries invite our parishioners to help people in some of the poorest regions of the world.
The Catholic Foundation’s World Mission Services helps coordinate the MCP collections in our diocesan parishes during the months of May through September. One of these missionary organizations is The Foundation for Children in Need (FNC) in India. Tom Chitta and Dr. Geetha Yeruva care for 200 of the orphaned, disabled, and elderly at the FCN home site. The community is working together to improve the lives of the needy in India.
“Through the generosity of others, we can reach out and assist some of the poorest in the world,” said Cindy St. Aubin, World Missions Director for the Catholic Foundation. World Missions Services works to provide our faith communities with a greater awareness of the needs of our world.
