COVID-19 Resources

The Association of Professional Chaplains is proud to call ourselves leaders in spiritual care.  Below are links to resources curated by leaders in healthcare, safety and disease control that pertain to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To view current/ongoing discussions by chaplains regarding spiritual care during COVID-19, we recommend visiting the APC Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProfChap/

The APC Facebook Group currently has several posts and threads discussing ideas, resources and best practices for chaplains during this unprecedented event. Please note that you need to be a member of the APC Facebook page to post to the page, but anyone can view and read posts.  If you choose to post on the page, we ask you to please read the rules regarding what are admissible posts/topics for discussion.
