Returning to Mass: An Exercise for the Whole Self

By: Kitty Eisenbeil, Director of Formation Well over a year ago we began the long marathon of COVID-19 restrictions which included shutting the doors of our churches and experiencing the separation from Christ in the Eucharist. Slowly but surely, diocese by diocese, we are seeing doors open once again and restrictions lift. We are also […]

God is the only constant

Dear Sisters in Christ, Greetings from Pennsylvania! Our family has completed another PCS – this time to Carlisle Barracks, but it was just this time last year that we were settling into another new home in Virginia. With back-to-back, one-year assignments, the saying “change is the only constant” comes to mind. I was reminded this […]

One for the History Books

By: Eleanor Gentilini There are many women’s ministry groups at military chapels around the world, and although they are all different in many ways, there is a common thread of SERVICE. One of the groups that has personified this virtue for decades is Our Lady of Fort Carson in Colorado. After recently attending funerals for […]

With Love: From the Holy Spirit to the Sacred Heart

By Kitty Eisenbeil, Director of Formation We did a remarkable thing, us women of the MCCW. Devoting time to prayer, specific time with specific intentions, for the sake of our beloved seminarians and promised priests, was a unique gift.

Transitional Whirlwind: Balancing the Calm and Chaos

Dear Sisters in Christ, It has been a whirlwind since I last wrote to you! We wrapped up the five virtual retreats, held regional and worldwide discernment processes, welcomed several new team members, and kept the gears spinning on many MCCW projects and efforts. MCCW feels a bit like that image of the duck – […]
