catholic_imagery There are few who comprehend the ideals of sacrifice and selfless service that form the bedrock of #priestly #ministry better than those in theUnitedStates #military, for whom service and #sacrifice are a way of life. Nearly ten percent of men ordained #priests in the United States every year have prior military service or grew up in military households. The life of a military priest-chaplain, ministering to the #spiritual and #sacramental needs of those men and women in the United States armed forces, is a natural #vocation for a man with prior military experience, and one that the #Church and the military desperately need.

THE VOCATION OF THE CHAPLAIN
Priestly ministry to those serving in the military is a unique and special vocation. The #Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA is the largest geographical diocese in the country, and within its bounds those called to serve as #chaplains must be prepared to undertake ministries as diverse as the regions they visit. As a sacramental minister, the priest-chaplain must bring #Christ and the healing power of the Church to men and women serving in an endless range of stressful, dangerous and possible deadly circumstances. He must be prepared to transfer from #parish ministry to ministry in a #war zone at a moment's notice, and act as comforter to service members and their #families in a way few others will ever experience.
Providing for the spiritual and sacramental needs of men and women in uniform is an essential task, and priest-chaplains are in higher demand now than ever before. Christ needs men to answer the call to the chaplaincy for the good of the #CatholicChurch, the country and the world.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Any single Catholic young man who is a US citizen with college experience who shows signs of having a vocation to priestly ministry, can meet the academic requirements for seminary training, and qualifies for military service is eligible to apply.
A candidate must be able to enter active duty before age 42. Adjustments on the entry age may be made for those with prior military service as long as the total number of years of #military service can equal twenty years or more.
