Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA
November 5-6, 2022
This unique Archdiocese is faced with many challenges, including a severe shortage of Catholic priest-chaplains, a flock spread out among military installations across the world, and constant transition. The AMS receives no funding from the military or the government and relies on private donations to fund all pastoral programs and services. The AMS Co-Sponsored Seminarian Program is the only U.S. Vocations Program that provides priests to serve the Church and the U.S. Military. Catholic service members and their families, and veterans cared for in a Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, deserve the same faith opportunities as Catholics here at home; their faith should not be part of the sacrifices they make.
