Missionary Childhood Association
MISSIONARY CHILDHOOD ASSOCIATION
The Missionary Childhood Association (MCA) is an international organization dedicated to fostering children’s awareness and participation in the missionary calling of our Church. Membership includes students in Catholic schools, religious education programs, and parishes.
Sponsored in a special way by the Pope, and in collaboration with the U.S. Bishops, MCA distributes educational and fund-raising programs to schools and religious education programs throughout the United States. With the motto of “Children Helping Children,” MCA encourages children to learn about and support underprivileged children in developing countries around the world.
The Missionary Childhood Association (MCA) program in the Mission Office exists to be of service to schools and religious education programs in the Diocese of Orange.
