The BLESS Annual Appeal supports the Episcopal Chaplains of the Armed Forces and Federal Ministries. These chaplains minister to soldiers, veterans, prison inmates, and their families. Called to serve both God and country, these chaplains are trained and guided by the Episcopal Church to serve in the four forces of the U.S. military and federal prisons.
Supporting the Annual Appeal helps to ensure that those fellow citizens in the military, Veterans Administration hospitals, and federal prisons, have access to spiritual and day-to-day support. Serving both overseas and stateside, our Chaplains bring spiritual healing and comfort to those with no other faith resources.
