​Chaplain Services

At CFB Shilo, chaplains are here to help.

What is a padre?  Your padre is:
  • A caring person of faith.
  • A confidant who you can trust.
  • A counsellor to help you find your way.
  • An advocate to represent you.
  • A mentor to encourage you.
  • A source of comfort in troubled times.
CFB Shilo's chaplain team leader is Maj Les Johnston. His team is comprised of four other chaplains - Padres Dennis, Nnanna, Shanahan and Walton. You are encouraged to talk with your chaplain at any time during the course of your military career. They will point you in the direction you need to go, listen when you need to talk something through, encourage you when you are in need, and come alongside you when you aren't quite sure what to do.

You can reach a padre during the day through your unit or by calling the Faith Centre Office Manager, Sophie Egloff, at 204-765-3000 ext. 3091.

For after-hours contact Base Duty at 204-765-3000 ext. 3044.
