Mission Cooperative Plan

Each year,  every parish in the Diocese of Winona-Rochester is asked to host a speaker from a mission diocese, organization, or a religious order along with many other dioceses of the United States Catholic Church through the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.  The mission appeal provides opportunities for prayer and financial support of the poorest of poor throughout the world. Evangelization is a primary aspect of the mission groups. The care and feeding of these men, women and children opens their hearts to understanding that they too are children of God.  The Mission Cooperative Plan also allows those who live and work in parts of the world that most of us will never visit, to educate us, and to help us live out our baptismal call.
