Pray, Fast, Give

Renew the Traditions of Our Faith

During Lent, we devote ourselves to seeking the Lord in prayer and reading Scripture, to service by giving alms, and to practice self-control through fasting. In a tangible way, our Church begs us to renew the tradition of the first Christians: “They devoted themselves to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread, and to the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)

Offer Acts of Service

MCCW is working throughout Lent to make the final preparations for the biennial MCCW Forum, which will gather nearly 250 women and AMS clergy in San Antonio for a weekend of spiritual talks, liturgies, reconciliation, adoration, and fellowship. The forum theme is Fiat – Behold I am the Handmaid of the Lord.” We are offering this work as part of our Lenten practice.

Devote Yourself to Prayer

Additionally, MCCW is praying daily for the Archdiocese for the Military Services’ co-sponsored seminarians. Using this custom prayer calendar, we are praying for seminarians by name with confidence that the Holy Spirit will guide these men in their vocation to the priesthood, and in the vocation within their vocation to serve as a military chaplain.

Support MCCW Through Giving

Finally, MCCW is reaching out to you today to ask you to join with us in almsgiving this Lent. MCCW completes its good work for Catholic military-affiliated women through the efforts of an all-volunteer leadership team and the generous donations of donors like you.

Your tax deductible gift will support MCCW’s work at the upcoming Forum and our preparation for seven regional retreats, which will take place in the next twelve months in Poland, Korea, Hawaii, and four locations throughout the continental United States.

Help Sponsor Forum 2020

MCCW relies solely on the efforts of our volunteers and individual donations to accomplish our good work. Today we ask that you become a Sponsor of MCCW’s 2020 Forum – “​FIAT – Be it Done to me According to your Word,” which will be held later in 2020, in San Antonio, Texas. 

What is the MCCW Forum? 

MCCW Forum is a biennial gathering of women of the military Archdiocese. During this weekend event, approximately 250 women from all over the world will gather in San Antonio, Texas with Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, USA and about 25 Catholic military chaplains. United around the theme of Mary’s Fiat, participants will receive inspiring talks from ​keynote speakers Jennifer Fulwiler and Katie Prejean McGrady; attend Masses celebrated by Archbishop Broglio and AMS clergy; and attend breakout sessions and workshops​ focused on connecting, uniting, and inspiring women’s ministry small groups at Catholic military communities.  

What Is Included?

The gathering will also include a robust vendor fair, visits to local churches, prayer services, daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and Reconciliation.  Forum provides a unique opportunity for Catholic military women to deepen friendships with one another and enjoy fellowship with women who share a similar experience in military life: frequent moves, deployments, living far from family, and caring for everyone in the community.  

After Forum, MCCW women always report returning to their military home refreshed and ready to serve the Church and their military families and communities with renewed spirit.

Thank You For Being Faithful

MCCW is grateful for the continued faithful support of Catholic military women and their families around the globe. Many women also give of their time and talents shared within our military community.  But, as you are well aware, we need to raise money in order to continue our mission to CONNECT, UNITE and INSPIRE military-affiliated women in their Catholic faith.  

What Your Gift Supports

MCCW’s biennial Forum including more than 250 women, seven regional retreats with more than 500 participants, and digital resources connecting over 2700 participants, connect women of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), unite them in faith and friendship with other Catholic military women, and inspire them in their service as disciples of Christ.   

Our shared involvement in MCCW happens through beautiful friendships, warm hospitality, inspiring speakers, and intentional time participating in prayer services, the liturgy and sacraments of our faith.

How You Can Help  

Remembering all the riches that you have experienced personally through MCCW, today we humbly ask you to make a gift to support MCCW’s good work for Catholic military women and the AMS. 

MCCW accomplishes its work through the efforts of an all-volunteer leadership team.  The financial support of chapel offerings is important, but we also need your individual gift.

Your gift will ensure we can continue the work at hand.
