- Catholic Women of the Chapel
Catholic Women of the Chapel is designed to open our hearts and minds so that we can more fully bring God into our lives, our families' lives, and into our community. We provide an opportunity for women to unite in prayer, to learn, share, and grow together in their knowledge of God, their Catholic faith, and the Church. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, CWOC reflects a visible presence of Christ in military communities by fostering and nourishing women in spirituality, leadership, and service.

- Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The RCIA program is the process by which adults become members of the Catholic Church. It is a multiple step process that takes several months to complete. The RCIA classes begin early September on Monday evenings, from 1915-2030 in the Cloister Room. This is a combined class that includes both adults and cadets. For more information, please contact CPT Andrew Blik.
- Youth Ministry
We have a youth program here at MHT utilizing the Life Teen curriculum for high school and Edge for middle school. Our goal is for teens to find community as they grow in their faith, build relationships with each other and with Christ, and be confident in their identity as Catholic Teens. Edge meets Mondays from 1830 - 2000 and Life Teen meets Wednesday evenings from 1830 - 2000, both downstairs in the church basement, Cloister Room.
