Dear Friend of Church and Country,
There is no other non-profit organization or Archdiocese like the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS).
The AMS serves active-duty military, veterans, civilian employees with the federal government outside the country – and their families – assuring the sacraments, spiritual support, and the Good News of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.
AMS-endorsed priests and chaplains go wherever American servicemen and women are stationed – be it a military installation at home or abroad, or one of the 153 VA Medical Centers. The calling to serve as a priest-chaplain in any of the Armed Services, is a vocation within a vocation. Providing the sacraments and spiritual care to veterans who served their country honorably, and who are now cared for in one of the VA Medical Centers across the country, is an important ministry of the AMS.
As one donor recently shared, she gives to the AMS “in gratitude and in hope.” This Archdiocese relies wholly on private donors and the generosity of the Catholic community to operate her many programs and services.
The AMS fiscal year (September 1, 2013-August 31, 2014) will end Sunday, August 31. I ask you to consider prayerfully making a tax-deductible donation before the end of the fiscal year in support of a one-of-a-kind mission ministry of the AMS –in gratitude and in hope.
Sincerely in Christ,
(Most Reverend) Timothy P. Broglio
Archbishop for the Military Services
