Coming to the aid of priest-chaplains – April 29, 2018

This collection supports Catholic military priest-chaplains through our Home Missions collection. Priest-Chaplains bless our troops with the healing power of the sacraments and good counsel—and they need your support!

About 250 Catholic chaplains serve on active duty. They minister to Catholics in the armed forces and U.S. military academies. Another 250 Catholic chaplains specifically serve patients in 153 Veterans Affairs Medical Centers.

Despite increased demand, the ranks of active-duty Catholic priest-chaplains have dropped due to priests reaching retirement faster than they can be replaced. Catholics make up roughly 25% of the military, but only 8% of chaplains are Catholic. Often, our young Catholic servicemen and women turn to other denominations for pastoral care due to a lack of Catholic priests.

The Home Missions collection also supports the call to evangelize active-duty young adults, for those who meet the pastoral care of this young generation, and for those who need to hear the Word of God proclaimed boldly and authentically.
