Usually, the chaplain’s participation in a meeting is at the beginning of the agenda. While chaplains can be engaged during installations and other fraternal functions, her primary role is to set the tone for the meeting. The words offered by the chaplain brings sisters together to enjoy the fellowship, service, and dedication of sisterhood.
Below is a collection of resources for chaplains at all levels of our organization, elected or appointed, to use during meetings, ceremonies, or services. Peruse the offerings below for inspiration or modify them to fit your needs. Additional contributions may be submitted through April 2021.
