The purpose of the Veterans/Military Ministry, established in October 2021, is to assist parishes in serving their veterans, military service members & families, as well as veterans and military people in their wider local communities.  

For those parishes/congregations & communities that would like to have a Veteran/Military ministry, the first step is becoming a veteran & military-friendly parish!

If you are interested in establishing a Veterans/Military ministry, we are here to offer guidance & stand ready to help you. There are many approaches to this, ranging from welcoming and caring for veterans and military people within your parish community to connecting with and ministering to veterans and military members in your wider local communities.
