Warrior2Citizen Program/Fall Festival

To: Priests, Deacons and Bulletin Editors
From: Maggie Rousseau, Director, Disabilities Ministry; Office of Life, Dignity and Justice

The Office of Life, Dignity, and Justice is working with Warrior2Citizen to bring programs to our parishes for veterans and their families. Warrior2Citizen focuses on families of service men and women and strives to reduce the suicide rate of our veterans using a holistic approach designed by military and academic professionals that incorporates healing interventions; psycho-education; individual, group and family clinical counseling modalities and vocational counseling.

Priests and deacons are needed as military chaplains. Training is provided.

To be a military chaplain, or for more information about Warrior2Citizen and their programs, visit warrior2citizen.org or email me at mrousseau@archatl.com.

For information about establishing a veteran’s ministry in you parish, please contact Kat Doyle, Director of Justice and Peace Ministries, at kdoyle@archatl.com.
