    My agency is considering trying to find a department chaplain. Unfortunately I can't find any literature online or recommendations or articles about the process. It seems like it could be a touchy situation.

    Through my professional experience I know chaplains can be such a useful tool for the agency and community, if you get the right chaplain or a good fit for your agency.

    Does anyone have any experience or advise on how to go about the process of recruiting chaplain applicants, interviewing, and how to do so without any hurt feelings?

    My department has about 20 chaplains of different Faiths. If you don't mind going outside Mass, I can ask our chaplain coordinator if he'd be willing to talk to you.

    Is there a particular church in your city that a lot of your guys attend? Maybe try talking to the Priest and see if he could give you some advice.
