Mission Cooperative Plan

 

Every year, all of our parishes in the Diocese of Oakland participate in the Missionary Cooperative Plan Weekend Appeal which is held during the summer months. Each parish is assigned one visiting missionary from a mission society, religious congregation, mission diocese, or a lay missionary organization so they can share with the parish community their stories of their mission activities and invite us to participate with our prayers and our financial support. Donations directly assist missionaries in efforts to share the faith in various countries around the world. All funds collected, less administrative costs, are pooled and dispersed in equal shares to participating missions.

 

MERCY Changes The WORLD

 

The Diocese of Oakland is currently accepting applications for the 2017 Missionary Cooperation Plan. Organizations wishing to participate must be a recognized Catholic missionary society in good standing with the United States Society for the Propagation of the Faith serving in one or more foreign countries, or in dioceses in the United States that are designated as a missionary by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
