The Diocese of Bathurst supports many chaplains across the region, who work either in a full-time or a part-time capacity.
The chaplain’s ministry is across many areas including health care, education and prison ministry.
Their role includes providing pastoral care and God’s presence to those who are on the margins of our society.
