I’ve written before on this blog and in the Catholic Voice about military service and the role I continue to fill as a Navy chaplain. There are fewer and fewer Catholics in the Military Chaplain Corps these days. The need has never been greater to attract seminarians to this military ministry to provide pastoral care.
I would like to invite all, particularly Veterans in the Diocese of Oakland, to join me and Archbishop Timothy Broglio at a benefit reception next week to raise interest and support for this ministry. The reception is on Tuesday, December 9 at 6PM at Marine’s Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco. For more information click here.
