Who we are!

MCCW-Worldwide is a non-profit subsidiary of the Archdiocese of Military Services (AMS).  MCCW works with military chapels across the AMS to build women’s ministry groups.  

What MCCW Can do for You! 

MCCW provides a unique network for Catholic military women.   We provide leader development training, and faith formation through, speakers, retreats, and online resources with our Journey of Faith program. We also provide conferences where women can gather to be inspired by Catholic speakers, and participate in spiritual development and practical workshops that meet the unique needs of women affiliated with the military. If you are new to the military or have recently PCSed (that’s military talk for moved!), please reach out to your regional coordinator to link up with MCCW in your area.

MCCW can help you start a women’s ministry group! 

Through Journey of Faith and the leadership of regional coordinators, we can also help you start or build a women’s ministry group at your chapel with the support of the local chaplain.  Our Sourcebook is a “Starting a Women’s Ministry in Your Military Community 101” guide.

Supporting Seminarians for the Military Chaplaincy 

Did you know that AMS chaplains serve over 1.8 million Catholics in the military? Our need for priests is great! MCCW actively supports AMS seminarians through fundraising to support the Archdiocese Co-Sponsorship Program, and we also have an Adopt a Seminarian Program. Through Adopt a Seminarian, military chapels spiritually adopt a seminarian through prayers and sending care packages throughout the year. If your ministry group would like to sponsor an AMS seminarian, contact us!

Our Lady of Good Counsel

Our Lady of Good Counsel is the Patroness of the MCCW. We ask for her intercession for our work.

    I’m glad to see the new blog format up and running. I really enjoyed being with all of my SISTERS last night at the Langley Awards Dinner for MCCW Catholic Women of the Church. I look forward to the coming year and seeing it grow into something beautiful for God! :)

    “Preserving our way of life demands vigilance, valor, respect for conscience and victory over the forces of evil that would otherwise vanquish the values we hold dear”

    WASHINGTON, D.C., July 04, 2014 (Zenit.org) – Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA, has issued the following statement on the occasion of the Fourth of July celebration of American Independence:

    “Independence Day is an occasion for picnics and parades, family fun and fireworks, but we must never forget that Freedom comes at a high price. The Nation’s birthday beckons our rededication to what makes us a great country while reminding us we are indeed ‘one nation under God.’

    Two hundred and thirty-eight years ago representatives from the thirteen colonies came to the conclusion that the time had come to cut ties with Great Britain and set out on a new course. It was a bold decision, which continues to bear fruit in our times. None of the founding Fathers knew where their decision would lead, but they did recognize the importance of working together to build a new kind of nation—a nation founded on principles and centered around the essence of what it means to be human, created in the image of Almighty God with inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

    Gratefully, we celebrate not only the cunning and courage of our founders, but also the selfless dedication and sacrifice of the many Americans serving our Nation in uniform, past and present. Our liberty lives through their sweat and blood. Preserving our way of life demands vigilance, valor, respect for conscience and victory over the forces of evil that would otherwise vanquish the values we hold dear. We must always recognize our debt to these brave men and women whose commitment and courage keep us free.”
