About the United States Catholic Mission Association
The U.S. Catholic Mission Association (USCMA) developed from two national organizations, the Mission Secretariat and the U.S. Catholic Mission Council. The Mission Secretariat served mission sending groups of the US for over twenty years. Similarly, the U.S. Catholic Mission Council continued the work of the Secretariat for some twelve years, until September 1, 1981. USCMA was approved in its present mode at the Annual Assembly of the Board of Directors in May 1981. USCMA continues to foster the development of cross-cultural and global mission and ministry in an ever-changing world. The United States Catholic Mission Association unites and supports people committed to the cross-cultural and global mission of Jesus Christ in service to the Church and the world.
