What is a chaplain? Who can become a chaplain? What kind of training do I need?
Chaplains are professionals who provide spiritual and emotional support to people in many different settings. You’ll listen to people who are in a very vulnerable place. You’ll celebrate with families who received great news. As a chaplain, you will mark the beginning of lives, the end of lives and the many transforming moments in between.
The mission of this information night is to not only provide information on the Catholic Chaplaincy, but to also support your discernment of God's will in your life and to provide the lay faithful with the resources needed to accompany your journey
