Catholic Priest Military Chaplains

The Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, has this to say about the priests who volunteer to be military chaplains:

The days are long. It can be lonely. Yet if you talk to most any of the priest-chaplains in the military, they will tell you they would not trade this ministry for any other. The rewards are great. The support of the people in the military is there. They are open to spiritual growth and willing to work hard for it. As the people in our military do the difficult work of protecting our freedom, Catholic chaplains walk beside them, providing the spiritual and emotional strength they need.

Don't bypass this Video on USA priest military chaplains if you want to be inspired to pray for them and for all of those who courageously serve our country in the armed forces.


Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
