The Greek Orthodox chaplains are priests who provide the Holy Mysteries to Orthodox Christians and pastoral ministry to people of all walks of life. Some priests serve full-time as chaplains in the armed forces, while other parish priests have assumed additional responsibilities as chaplains at Veterans Administration hospitals or with local police forces. One of the most significant features of chaplaincy activity is ministry to individuals other than Orthodox Christians, and the witness of our Orthodox faith among all Americans.
