The duties of the Chaplain are to pronounce the invocation and the benediction at Legion meetings, as well as perform such other acts as would fall within the realm of his/her office as the spiritual leader. They should conduct the memorial service when such is needed.
As the Legion is composed of men and women of different creeds and faiths, the Chaplain must be a person of tolerance and sympathy toward all.

Chaplain’s Corner Post 291
Greetings to all our Post 291 Legionnaire Family.
By now, you all have more than enough information about our Covid 19 crisis. If you have needs that our Post might be able to help with, please call our office and leave needed information so we can contact you.
I want to leave you with an Irish Prayer to bless you and an affirmation of Faith to encourage your relationship with God.
The affirmation can be used by most faith traditions. Just replace Lord with God, or Creator or First Cause or Wisdom, you get the picture. Make it work for you and your form of communication with the Eternal.
An Irish Prayer
“May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
Affirmation of Faith
“Lord, you have always given bread for the coming day; and though I am poor, today I believe.
Lord, you have always given strength for the coming day; and though I am weak, today I believe.
Lord, you have always given peace for the coming day; and though of anxious heart, today I believe.
Lord, you have always kept me safe in trials; and now, tried as I am, today I believe.
Lord, you have always marked the road for the coming day; and though it may be hidden, today I believe.
Lord, you have always lightened this darkness of mine; and though the night is here, today I believe.
Lord, you have always spoken when time was ripe; and though you be silent, today I believe.”
If you have some time on your hands, take a moment and call one of our legionnaire vets and check in on them.
In God’s Mercy,
Chaplain Ken Wilson.
