Military Ordinariates and Dioceses

Postby Tyskaorden2 » 12 Jun 2011 12:19

The Religious Affairs of the Various Armed Forces from round the World are organised into Ordinariates (Non territorial Dioceses) or Dioceses. Not all of these have Arms but a few does I I here intend to have a look at these.

The examples given are Roman Catholic and are not part of the military organization. Example:
http://www.milarch.org/site/c.dwJXKgOUJ ... We_Are.htm
The Archdiocese for the Military Services was created by Pope John Paul II to provide the Catholic Church's full range of pastoral ministries and spiritual services to those in the United States Armed Forces. This includes more than 220 installations in 29 countries, patients in 153 V.A. Medical Centers, and federal employees serving outside the boundaries of the USA in 134 countries. Numerically, the AMS is responsible for more than 1.5 million men, women, and children.

The Archdiocese receives no funding from the United States government. Rather, the Archdiocese is solely funded by the generosity of its chaplains, men and women in uniform and private benefactors.

Are there any other religions participating in this approach?

Ordinariate seems to be the more common term.

An interesting history of the Canadian Chaplaincy.

R.C. Military Ordinariate of the Philippines, the "Philippine" Sun is charged with the letter ka of the baybayin alphabet.

R.C. Military Ordinariate of the Netherlands. The Winged Sealion symbolises the Army, Air Froce and Navy that the Ordinariate serves. The Cross are a symbol of the religious work done by the Ordinariate. The Sword in the external ornament is perhaps out of place, it was used in former times to denote the temporal power of the Prince-Bishops.
