Archbishop of Military Services visits Camp Lejeune

9 Mar 2010 | Lance Cpl. Melissa Latty

Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio, the Roman Catholic Archbishop for U.S. Military Services, visited several major commands aboard Camp Lejeune, including Marine Corps Installations East, II Marine Expeditionary Force, 2nd Marine Division and 2nd Marine Logistics Group, March 5-9.

Upon his arrival to Camp Lejeune, Broglio met with Lt. Gen. Dennis J. Hejlik, the commanding general of II MEF, and attended the Stations of the Cross and Benediction at St. Francis Xavier Chapel alongside Marines, sailors and civilians who work aboard the base. 

“As the person who determines who can and cannot be a Catholic chaplain, it is important that he come out and see us, our people, and the things we are doing, not to mention the areas in which we need support,” said Lt. Cmdr. Shaun S. Brown, chaplain for Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd MLG.

Broglio’s trip to the North Carolina Marine bases followed his visit to Fort Bragg, an Army base located northwest of Lejeune.

“The Archbishop gets out quite a bit,” Brown said.  “Last year he spent part of Holy Week in Baghdad.  He is no stranger to travelling.”

As the spiritual leader for all Catholics in the military, Broglio’s responsibilities extend to wherever U.S. military forces and Department of Defense civilians are stationed or deployed.

According to milarch.org, the Archdiocese for the Military Services was created by Pope John Paul II in 1985 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 Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, and federal employees serving overseas in 134 countries. In all, the AMS oversees the religious affairs for more than 1.5 million men, women, and children.

During his visit, Broglio also went to Marine Corps Air Stations New River and Cherry Point.
