Overseas Chaplains

A chaplain accompanies each deployment of soldiers and supports all appointment holders and all ranks during the pre-deployment and during the mission.

Fr PJ Somers CF leads a prayer service on the Golan Heights for Irish, Nepalese, Fijian, Filipino and Indian personnel of UNDOF in memory of the victims of the earthquake in Nepal.

Contact with all personnel is also supported by chaplains at home in Ireland and with fellow chaplains from other nationalities serving in the Mission area.

Please keep them and all personnel overseas in your prayers.
