The Mission Office (Society for the Propagation of the Faith) is the official agency that assists the missions, both nationally and internationally.
In 1964, the Diocese of Cleveland answered the call of Pope John XXIII to help spread the kingdom of Christ to the poor in El Salvador.
We accept and distribute Mass intentions to missionaries throughout the world.
The Mission Office accepts donations to the Holy Father’s Mission Fund as memorials offered in memory of the deceased, as well as for the living.
The Missionary Cooperation Plan (MCP) is a program in which missionaries from around the world speak in parishes.
We are all missionaries. Some are missionaries by going to the missions and others are missionaries by supporting those who go.
Each year, the Holy Father asks for our prayers for a specific intention each month.
The Diocese of Cleveland is dedicated to serving the mission of the Church. We welcome all questions via phone or email inquiry.
