“Celebrating 100 Years of Christian Scientists in Military Chaplaincy”

The Library celebrates a century of Christian Science participation in military chaplaincy. Our latest exhibit gathers together documents, photographs, and objects that demonstrate the impact these individuals have made in serving the United States armed forces and their church.

Christian Science chaplains have served in every major conflict since World War I. These men and women provide counseling to soldiers, conduct religious observances, engage in community service, and offer healing prayer to anyone asking for it.
