As we enter this Lenten Season, a time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, we pray that you are able to focus and find healing through the works of these three pillars.
Come Fast with Us
As a mother of three, I know first-hand how it can be hard to focus and follow all the practices involved during Lent while managing a household and possibly an absent family member. Earlier this month, I shared one of my favorite meatless recipes with you. Here is another from MCCW Director of Finance, Joan LaPore:
Beans & Rice
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 can stewed or diced tomatoes
- 1 can black beans (not drained or rinsed)
- Seasonings to taste: cumin, salt and pepper
- Fresh cilantro
- Cooked rice
- Flour tortillas
Instructions: Saute the onion and garlic in a bit of oil. When soft, add the tomatoes and beans. Simmer until desired consistency. Season and serve with rice and tortillas and topped with cilantro.
Come Pray with Us
As MCCW’s perpetual charity, we hold the AMS Co-Sponsored Seminarians close to our hearts. We provide for them through the Adopt-A-Seminarian program and our Endowed Scholarship Fund throughout the year. Join with us this Lent and support them through prayer by remembering one seminarian by name in your prayers each day. You will find a beautiful, printable calendar in this issue of The Well to help you remember them.
Come Give with Us
Finally, MCCW is humbly asking you to pledge $20, or the cost of meat for one or two Friday dinners, to our ministry. Your gift of any size helps us to continue our mission of connecting, uniting and inspiring US military-affiliated women across the globe as they grow and flourish in our faith. You can make your gift online by visiting www.mccw.org/giving.
Thank you for your continued prayers and generosity to MCCW.
