Each year, from May to September, Mission Dioceses, Religious Orders, and Lay Organizations working in the missions preach at a parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to share their beautiful ministry and to appeal for financial support. This annual appeal known as the Mission Cooperative Plan helps unite the Archdiocese of Los Angeles with the Universal Church and to create mission awareness. The generous response, which is traditional amongst the people of Los Angeles, reflects the ongoing awareness and concern for the people of the world. To hear a mission appeal at your parish, check out the Parish Appeal Calendar!

The Mission Cooperative Plan invites a little over 100 mission groups to share their mission story with the faithful of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. These groups come from various parts of the world, each with unique experiences and challenges, enriching the community with their diverse perspectives. As part of the invitation, all groups attend a fun-filled night of community networking and mission sharing during our Summer Dinners. These dinners, filled with joy and camaraderie, provide the space to get to know each other’s ministry, celebrate successes, and share God’s love. These dinners are open to pastors, administrators, and/or parish council teams interested in fostering a sense of unity and collaboration related to mission among their parishes. The 2024 Summer Dinner dates are June 24, July 22, and August 26 at 5:30 pm at St. Brendan Parish, Los Angeles. For more information, call 213-637-7223 or or click to RSVP.

The MCA Family Mission Day is a special event designed by MCA to promote, educate, and animate our baptismal call to be missionaries among children and their families; fostering the missionary spirit that we are called to have as a church that goes out to the peripheries serving the poor and spreading the joy of the Gospel. The missionary spirit starts at home, with parents passing on the faith to their children as domestic churches and putting the faith into practice in our homes. The next FMD will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2024, at St. John Chrysostom Parish, Inglewood. For more information on how you can host a FMD at your parish contact

The MCA Youth Appreciation Mass is an annual celebration of the children who are part of the Missionary Childhood Association. It is our way of recognizing and celebrating the missionary spirit present in the young church of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2024, at 10 am at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Los Angeles. For more information email
