Here’s a question from Marie:
I’ve been asked to take over the Chaplain’s Aide training for our council, but they have no training materials from the previous coordinator. Can someone please share with me how you run training for Chaplain’s Aide? Thanks in advance!
Thanks for the question Marie. And congratulations to your council for even having a Chaplain’s Aide training program. I don’t have any personal experience with this, but here are some ideas of things you might cover:
- General responsibilities of the position.
- How to handle sensitivities in groups of mixed faiths.
- How to run an interfaith prayer service.
- Where to find materials for the religious emblems for each faith.
I’m sure some readers who have been directly involved in Chaplain’s Aide training have some ideas. Please add your suggestions to the comments below.
