CatholicMil.org is an online platform to serve and support Catholic members and families of all branches of the U.S. military. By reminding each other of spiritual truths in the midst of the difficulties faced in military life, we can live in the light of the Catholic Faith. If you think that faith and the military are mutually exclusive, consider Paragraph 2310 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which states:
“Those who are sworn to serve their country in the armed forces are servants of the security and freedom of nations. If they carry out their duty honorably, they truly contribute to the common good of the nation and the maintenance of peace.”
If you are called to serve our nation by joining the military, that calling doesn’t mean an abandonment of faith, but rather an abundance of faith. By faithfully carrying out your duties, whether on the battle front or by supporting your soldier, you can be a light in a dark world, pursuing freedom and security for the benefit of others.
Ways to Assist
• Pray for those who serve in the Military Ordinariate of the US Armed forces, including the many chaplains who spiritually lead troops
• Pray for the wisdom of our military leaders
• Pray for victory over the enemy
• Pray for the strength and protection for all military and their families
While prayer is one of the greatest ways you can assist, you may also show your support tangibly by checking out our care package program or giving financially. Your generosity enables us to continue ministering to Catholics in the Military, their families, and the chaplains that serve them.
