This Lent, join Pope Francis and the efforts of the Missionary Childhood Association (MCA) as they work to meet the needs of over 3.5 million of the world’s poorest children.
Who Will Your Lent Mite Box Help?
As a part of the Pope’s Mission Societies, the Missionary Childhood Association (MCA) gives 100% of your tax-deductible donation to millions of impoverished children throughout the world who lack clean water, food to eat, education, a bed to sleep in, safety, healthcare, and hope.
How Does A Mite Box Work?
It's as easy as 1-2-3.
STEP 1. Order your FREE Lent Mite Box here.
STEP 2. Put it somewhere when it arrives – maybe the dining room table, a nightstand, the cupholder in your car – that you and your family will be sure to see it frequently. Each day during Lent, place your spare change or cash in the mite box, knowing that every penny – and dollar! – you collect will go directly to help a child in need in the Pope's missions.
STEP 3. Send the donations when Lent is over to the Missionary Childhood Association by check or by donating online. There will be more information on how to do that when you receive your Mite Box.
The "widow’s mite" from the Gospel (Luke 21:1-4) had a mighty impact and yours will too!
Who Should Order A Lent Mite Box?
A Mite Box is a wonderful Lenten project for parents, grandparents, schools, religious education programs, youth groups, and parishes! Children and adults will gain a greater awareness of the urgent needs of those around the world by participating in this project.
