Chaplaincy is an important and essential mission of the ASDF. The importance of Chaplaincy is magnified in times of disaster or war. Chaplaincy provides support to members of the ASDF and their families. Our Chaplaincy is highly trained in Critical Stress Management and can also minister to victims and first responders in an extremely meaningful way. Our Chaplaincy has provided training and help in the important field of Suicide Prevention. Our Chaplains have presided over many military funerals.
