International Conference of War Veteran Ministers
We gather once a year at different locations around the country.
Our Annual Meetings:
- The 2012 Annual Meeting will be held in Mariottsville, Maryland from Tuesday evening November 6 through Sunday morning November 11, at the Bon Secours Spiritual Center.
- Single accomodation for one person is $800; double accomodation for two persons is $1000. Members who are willing to share a room may be able to share the double rate.
- Contact the treasurer to register.
- These Annual Meetings include a special invitation to clergy who are veterans of conflicts after Vietnam, including the current conflict in Afghanistan and the recently ended conflict in Iraq.
- Annual Meetings are for current and potential full, associate, and affiliate members.
For further information contact our Officers. Some scholarship assistance is available.
- Serve as a spiritual welcome home to veterans who are also clergy or full time religious workers. There are opportunities for "sharing our stories" making tangible the healing nature of doing so in a community of trust.
- Serve as a source of spiritual growth. The context of scripture, prayer, and liturgy from our respective traditions has made these experiences both unique and powerful as settings for healing.
- Serve as a source of professional growth. We invite speakers from fields of concern to our ministries as war veterans who are ordained or fulltime religious workers.
- Serve as a means of outward focus as we make plans for our organization, and for our organization's work.
Our Annual Meetings rotate across North America. The list of past meetings is below; those that are highlighted have their own page with photographs.
