Federal chaplains serve those in the military, Veterans Administration hospitals, and federal prisons, providing spiritual and day-to-day support to servicemen and women overseas and stateside, veterans requiring medical services, and the incarcerated. They bring spiritual healing and comfort to those with no other faith resources. If you are interested in federal military or prison chaplaincy, contact the office of the Bishop Suffragan for Armed Forces and Federal Ministries; the Deputy Endorser will explain the programs, the application process, and will stay involved with you each step of the way.
THE ORIGINAL VISION OF THE OFFICE OF THE ARMED FORCES AND FEDERAL MINISTRIES
“The real objective of the military chaplaincy [of this Church] is not the welfare of bishops or priests or of the armed forces as an institution, but the care of the flock of Christ – men, women, and children – whose lives are lived in the military establishment around the world.”(The Living Church, First Sunday of Advent, 1 December 1963)
