Welcome

 

The purpose of this blog is to inform and educate you about the different types of Chaplains and what their roles are in their perspective environments.

A chaplain is a member of the clergy attached to a private chapel, institution, ship, branch of the armed forces, etc. Historically chaplains were responsible primarily for ‘religious’ functions however as people become less ‘religious’ and more interested in spirituality so the role is changing chaplains are becoming ‘pastoral practitioners’.

Hopefully this site will help you understand the different aspects of the Chaplaincy and allow to maybe consider playing a part in helping or even becoming one yourself.
