Through membership in the Missionary Childhood Association [MCA], one of the Pontifical Mission Societies, children in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and around the world learn about their baptismal responsibility to evangelize, grow in understanding of children their age in the developing world and become active Missionary Disciples through their own witness, prayer and sacrifice.
The MCA mission animation offerings in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia include Mission-oriented prayers, on-line and printed catechetical materials and presentations. The Holy Father asks Missionary Childhood Association members to pray daily for the children in the Missions. All members are asked to offer one “Hail Mary” daily for children in the Missions.
