"...This is a deep mystery, and an inexhaustible subject of meditation, that the salvation of many depends on the prayers and voluntary penances which the members of the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ offer for this intention...". Mystici Corporis Christi, 44

"(5) There is light for the understanding both of the Church and of our own lives in this truth that the Church as a whole and we its members have some kind of share in the redemptive suffering of Christ...But it was in the glorious design of God that human love should not be denied all place in the expiation of human sin, and men be condemned to be no more than spectators of their own redemption... There is then a co-redemptive activity of the whole Mystical Body, deriving the whole of its effectiveness from the redemptive action of Christ;" Theology and Sanity, ch. 22

Does the Church still teach this?

I can't seem to find it in the CCC.

Yes, the Church still teaches this. Despite its impressive size, the CCC doesn't cover everything, including things one might wish it did

There is a mention of it in CCC 307, though it sounds like it's voluntary.

"penance should not be reduced by being considered in a personal isolation. Following Jesus as it does, it must be understood both as obedience to the Father and as a vicarious service for the others and for the world." Penance and Reconciliation (1982) - International Theological Commission.

With Divine law obligating us to do penance (can. 1249), I don't understand how it can be passed over so lightly.
Or am I making too much of this?

The ascetical life is sadly neglected these days.
