Summer Mission Co-op

The Summer Mission Co-operative (Co-op) Plan is an opportunity for parishes to learn about, take inspiration from, and support global missionaries. Missionaries visit participating parishes over a weekend of masses to share their stories and invite parishioners to offer financial contributions through a second collection.

Participating missionary groups serve the spiritual, social, and material needs of people in under-resourced areas throughout our world. Many of these groups also have members living and serving within the Archdiocese of Chicago as pastors or priest administrators, parishioners, volunteers at local agencies and parishes, and students in seminary or religious formation.
