We invite you to join the NACC family!
You don’t have to be a certified Catholic chaplain to join the NACC. We welcome individuals from all walks of life and all faith traditions to learn more about our mission and to work together to promote the Church’s healing ministry. Our members form a rich and diverse community, dedicated to enhancing chaplaincy and ministry across the country. We offer community, educational resources, a path to certification, and advocacy for all our members. Learn which membership is right for you!
Our flagship membership is for all Catholic chaplains who are either currently certified, are pursuing a certification with the NACC, or who simply want to take an active role in the organization.
This membership level is for individuals of ANY faith, who either serve or lead in some aspect of the Church’s pastoral care ministry field, or in the broader spiritual care profession.
We welcome all Catholic educational institutions which promote chaplaincy ministry and offer graduate theological degrees or certificate programs that satisfy prerequisites for certification through the NACC to join as Education Collaborators. Member schools enjoy benefits for faculty and students in the program.
The Healthcare Collaborator Membership is available to both Catholic and non-Catholic healthcare entities interested in promoting and strengthening spiritual care programs within their organizations and among healthcare providers through close work with and support from the NACC.
Diocesan & Parish Collaborators (Coming Soon)
In response to interest, we are currently developing a membership package for Dioceses and Parishes to join and support the NACC’s mission. More information coming soon!
