Welcome to the Pontifical Mission Societies

in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Letter from the Executive Director


Christmas is just around the corner with not just the gift giving and family gatherings, but more importantly, it is the season to celebrate the birth of our Newborn King! This is a time of hope that in the darkness of our world, our Savior brings His light to shine for all.


As we embark on this season, the children living in the most vulnerable communities in the missions around the globe come to mind. These little ones continue to grapple with economic instability and frequently the violence of war or persecution, magnified by the ravages of a global pandemic. It is with these innocent souls in mind that the Missionary Childhood Assocation began its formation in 1843.


The Missionary Childhood Association, one of the four pontifical mission societies, is the Holy Father’s official agency for mission for children that provides substantial support for children’s most basic needs. Currently, children in over 110 countries are supported through prayers and sacrificial giving from MCA throughout the world. Will you join our efforts in giving the gift of hope and the light of our Newborn Savior to the children in the missions?


Through your gift to the Missionary Childhood Association, you can be right there, offering hope, with the Religious Sisters, priests, and catechists of St. Anthony of Mohipara Parish in Bangladesh. The Sisters reach out to 296 poor village children to share their Christian faith, care for their basic needs like food and clothing, teach them, and offer help when they are ill. Most importantly, the Sisters give these children the gift of hope – the hope of the Good News of Jesus’ birth. For our Master was born into the same humble and uncertain circumstances as these children. The reality of His love is alive in the work and witness of the Sisters, as they care and prepare the children to celebrate Christmas.


This Christmas, I invite you to add mission Sisters – and the children they serve – to your gift list? Just $5 a day – $25 for a week or a month’s support of $150 – provides for such work in mission schools and parishes, outreach, and health centers, in Bangladesh and throughout the missions. Your prayers and support accompany missionaries as they share the Good News of God’s great love revealed in His Son, Jesus.

What can be a better Christmas gift?


Thank you for considering my invitation and know that I am also grateful for your kind missionary heart and the great generosity you are extending. As I keep you and your family in my intentions throughout the Christmas Season, I ask God’s abundant blessings upon you and your loved ones.


– Reverend Monsignor Terrance L. Fleming
