This summer, you’ll have the chance to meet a Comboni Missionary at a parish near you as part of the Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP). Hear the fascinating stories of their experiences in Africa and around the world. Comboni Missionaries minister to the world’s poorest and most abandoned people; sharing the life of the poor, training lay leaders, educating people, and establishing the Church, often times in very unstable political climates and in the midst of extreme poverty.

The MCP was created many years ago by the bishops of the United States in order to give parishes the opportunity to meet a missionary at least once a year. Visiting Comboni Missionaries are assigned to parishes by local diocesan mission offices. Typically, the missionaries will spend a weekend in the parish celebrating Masses, meeting informally with parishioners, and sharing their message.

You’ll find a schedule of their Meet the Missionaries Summer Talk Program below. Check back regularly as this list continues to be updated.
