Three goals of MCA have remained unchanged since its founding:
One is the emphasis MCA places on the need for children to fulfill their baptismal responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus with children in the developing countries.
The second goal encourages children to pray for and offer their own personal sacrifices for children who are in desperate need of basic resources like clean water, food, education and medical care.
And the third, above all, is the knowledge of the love of God.
These goals are the foundation for the primary purpose of MCA – to help children strengthen their relationship with God through active participation in the missionary work of the Church.
“Children Cannot Do It Alone”: Parents, guardians, pastors, religious brothers and sisters, lay people, especially principals, teachers, CCD directors and catechists, play a vital role in MCA’s mission. With support from these people, the MCA message can reach the greatest number of children.
