MCP 2017 APPEALS
Every year Hands Together takes part in the Missionary Cooperative Plan at parishes across the country. Hands Together also coordinates and conducts appeals on behalf of projects and ministries in Gonaives and Cap Haitien, Haiti, as well as HT’s ministry in Port-au-Prince. All of the funds raised go directly to the work of helping the poor through feeding programs, health/medical care, education, maintenance/repair of structures, and reaching the poor with the love of Christ in the ministry designated for the appeal.
Each mission appeal is an opportunity for us to share our faith with fellow Catholics in the United States and bring to life the very real work of the mission church in Haiti and the tremendous need for us to hear the cry of the poor there and help those who are suffering. The Missionary Cooperative Plan assigns a mission group to every parish to speak about the work of our church in other parts of the world and to remind us that our church is fundamentally a Mission Church.
