Dear Member,

I hope this email finds you well. I am writing today to ask you to support NACC's commitment to promote chaplaincy by taking four simple steps to promote the Choose Chaplaincy message to your local parishes. We have been sharing the Choose Chaplaincy message at a high level for nearly a year, with great success!

We would like you to begin promoting chaplaincy as a career at the grass roots level, starting with your own home parishes. The timing is especially fortuitous, in that Spiritual Care Week is coming up quickly (October 20-26) with Vocations Week on its heels (November 3-9). This is an excellent opportunity to share information about how a person can answer the call to chaplaincy.

Request FREE Materials
The first step I am asking you take is to request a FREE narthex materials kit. We have beautiful and informative Choose Chaplaincy materials available for you to order and place in your church’s information area. They are FREE to you and your parish.

Parish Communications
The second step is to request to have one of our Choose Chaplaincy images included in your parish bulletin. We have a variety of pre-made images available in our  ChooseChaplaincy.org  materials toolkit.

Approach your pastor or parish leadership with the request to place materials in the narthex, make a short pulpit announcement about the call to Chaplaincy and offer to greet interested parishioners after mass in the narthex. Here is a link to talking points and pulpit announcements to get you thinking.

Link on Website
The third step I am asking you to request a link to  ChooseChaplaincy.org  be placed on your parish’s website. We have a selection of graphics, and directions for implementation that can be used for that purpose. We also have some very informative and inspiring additional Choose Chaplaincy content your parish may wish to share on its website.

Facebook Page
Fourth and finally, I ask that you recommend your parish follow and share the NACC Facebook page with its parishioners. We have a strong base of NACC members who follow and share content to their personal accounts, now we would like parishes to help us spread the Choose Chaplaincy message. We also have a library of videos on the NACC YouTube channel .

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
David Lichter
NACC Executive Director
