military priests

Reading and writing about military chaplains over the past couple of days awoke my passion for the military.  I wrote an email to the Archdiocese of Military Services, and got a response from Auxiliary Bishop Estabrook.Military Catholics @ MassThe Archdiocese of Military Services doesn’t take priests directly but rather accepts priests “on loan” from individual dioceses for a period of three years and up.  They don’t have a seminary or incardinate priests. All their priests must have been priests and had a pastoral assignment for at least three years before coming on active duty.Each Service has a seminary program. When accepted by that Service and with permission of your diocese, you could be commissioned a reserve officer while in theology and have a chance to serve at an installation sometime during your studies just to see what the chaplaincy is like.

Father Chandler, the Vocations Director, will be sending me materials and be in touch.  — I’ll see what happens.

      You can get more information at the Archdiocese of Military Services website at http://www.milarch.org/. There are emails and phone numbers for more info.

      I’ll pray for your vocation.

      God bless & stay holy!
