Chaplaincy Council

The Chaplaincy Council works with the Chaplain in promoting the mission of the church. The Chaplain and the Council have a duty to consult together on matters of general concern and importance to the Chaplaincy, and to co-operate in promoting the whole mission of the church: pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical. This includes almost everything to do with the chaplaincy's work in the Hérault and its relationship with the Archdeaconry and the Diocese.
