Military members often seek spiritual guidance from their chaplains, yet the specifics of a chaplain’s work are often shrouded in mystery.
Major Daniel Walton, Senior Fleet Chaplain at CFB Esquimalt, says the job of a chaplain is not a typical nine to five job.
“You look after the spiritual well-being of your unit or your ship. It’s our responsibility to go out to where people are. This helps us be seen and they feel more confident to come see us when they need,” he says.
