Pray for more Catholic Chaplains. They now have a co-sponsorship program where they have a parish location as well as serving on the base.
I had never thought about it today, but several of the Catholic Chaplains on this Serra Club weekend repeated:
“In the regular world the people come to the priest in the parish. In the military world the priest goes to the troops, and basically has no parish.”
I think they are trying this co-sponsorship program in Washington, Virginia and one other state which I cannot remember at the present.
These priest who are also soldiers, sailors, air force personnel, etc. are truly God-fearing and God-serving men. God bless them.
