In September, we take time to remember the brave service members who are listed as Prisoners of War (POW) or Missing in Action (MIA). We invite you to remember these individuals and their families in your prayers, or offer the Divine Mercy Chaplet for all people listed as POW or MIA.
As you know, every casualty of war, POW and MIA included, represents not only one life affected, but many — parents, spouses, family, and friends. POW and MIA remembrance brings into sharp relief the importance of the sacraments in the lives of the approximately 1.8 million AMS faithful. As our nation continues to engage in conflict, the Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS), USA, ensures that the spiritual and pastoral needs of service members and their families are met.
However, in order to provide the faithful of this Archdiocese with the sacraments, pastoral care, and catechesis, I need your help. I ask that you prayerfully consider making a one-time charitable contribution to this Archdiocese or establishing a recurring gift online today at www.milarch.org/give.
Thank you, and please pray for service members whose whereabouts are still unknown. Pray also for peace for their families. Pray for a lasting and just peace.
With sentiments of heartfelt gratitude, I remain
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio
Archbishop for the Military Services, USA
