The Pan-African Chaplain Corps (PACC) is a civilian, multiethnic,
Multinational service organization, its members being recruited from all
nationalities. Our Corps membership consists entirely of Volunteers, both
civilian and retired military willing to donate their pastoral energies to the
people of the towns, states or countries in which they live.
Many a times,
when a chaplain is needed to serve for example civilians, sailors, soldiers,
veterans, prisoners, the hospitalized. few if any are available. Therefore,
the volunteer chaplains of the PACC are available for chaplaincy activities
in the broadest sense, including presiding at funerals, officiating at
weddings, visiting ships in harbor, consoling inmates of hospitals and
institutions, and providing such pastoral or spiritual comfort as may be
required, regardless of the recipients religious affiliations and beliefs.
Members of the Pan-African Chaplain Corps also stand ready to serve as
emergency responders, assisting local authorities during times of crisis.
The PACC is fully non-denominational.
Communication between members of a worldwide organization like the
PACC mainly takes place via the internet or telephones. It is therefore
necessary that (prospective) PACC members have good access to both
email and the Worldwide web.
In some countries, this tends to be more
difficult than in others, but all (prospective) PACC members should be able
to access their email and our website at least twice a week.
