Welcome to Carlisle!
MCCW is an organization for women of the parish to join one another in friendship and faith to learn, grow and be active with the needs of the chapel community, under the direction of the Chaplain.
Our mission is to "reflect a visible presence of Christ in military communities by fostering and nourishing women in spirituality, leadership and service. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, MCCW serves as a vital enhancement of the religious support mission of military chapels."
The MCCW-Carlisle Barracks meets regularly on each Friday of the month with First Friday being our main gathering with Rosary, Mass and a Program. Other Fridays are dedicated to Bible Studies and Days of Caring. We may have special days when we travel on a Pilgrimage to a Basilica, Monastery, or special place of interest to enrich our faith lives.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing the journey of faith, hope and love with you this year.
Our theme for the upcoming year is "We are Called to Be Faithful."
