XIV. Instructions To Unit Chaplains
The Unit Chaplain will express, by word and action, our founding principal of service to God and Country. She will encourage the Unit to celebrate the diversity amongst its members and their faiths. She will provide spiritual and emotional guidance to members, or their families, as needed or requested and with respect, always maintain confidentiality. The Unit Chaplain is responsible for pronouncing the invocation and the benediction at Auxiliary meetings, as well as performing such other acts as would fall within the realm of her office as the spiritual leader of the Unit including, but not limited to: installation, initiation of new members, dedication of halls, monuments or colors, Four Chaplain Services, POW/MIA recognition programs and the memorial service of a member; always lending dignity and respect to the occasion. The Chaplain should stay in close contact with the President and other officers of the Unit and should attend all meetings of the Unit and the Unit Executive Committee. She also send names of deceased members to Department Chaplain, District Chaplain as soon as possible. It is recommended that Unit Chaplains be designated to send cards to ill members and letters or cards to members of their families in the event of death.
