Missionary Co-Op

Welcome to the Office of the Missionary Co-Operative Plan of the Diocese of Hamilton.


The mandate of the Mission Co-operative Program is to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ in developing countries by:

  1. Providing food, clean water, clothing, medical/dental care and supplies, tuition, school supplies, literacy training to those in need;
  2. Supporting the on-going formation of missionaries in the evangelization of the Word of God;
  3. Supporting the work of catechists;
  4. Educating the parishes of the Diocese of Hamilton about the work of missionaries and missionary groups.

Missionary Organizations are invited to participate in and help us achieve our program by describing in detail how they could assist us to fulfill our mandate in the country in which they serve and by committing to speaking in parishes in the Diocese of Hamilton to share the work they are doing in different parts of the world.
