Initial Long-Term Application

If you are interested in exploring our long-term mission option, you are welcome to submit an online initial application below. An MCV staff member will then contact you to continue the process. This is the beginning of a more thorough process of getting to know our applicants and prayerfully discerning a service placement for them. Applicants are first interviewed and considered for general acceptance into the program before potential mission site placements are discussed in detail. Placements are determined through a series of conversations among the sisters who would host the volunteer, the MCV staff, and the prospective volunteer. The application and placement phase generally lasts a few weeks or months, and may include the chance for the prospective volunteer to visit a potential mission site before finalizing the placement.
