Chaplain Services

Our mission is “Facilitate worship, we minister to others and we care for all.”
 
The chaplaincy team is composed of eight chaplains: one Muslim, one Jewish, two Roman Catholic (one of whom is a priest) and four Protestant.
We provide pastoral services in both official languages.
 
The two chapels are located next to one another on Dieppe Road across from the base theatre and the Officers’ Mess.
