Chaplain Services


As ordained clergy of specific denominations/faith groups, our chaplains provide counseling, and perform baptisms, dedications, weddings, and other rituals and sacraments in accordance with the rules and guidelines of their churches. For specific ministries, make arrangements with the chaplain of your choice well in advance. Most events require preparation.
