- We are always in search for more team members who can add to the diversity of our chaplaincy. Specifically, we would like to see at least one Imam, as well as a Roman Catholic or an Eastern Orthodox priest who can properly consecrate the Eucharistic elements for those who come from the sacramental traditions. Additionally, we are looking for a Wiccan or Neo-Pagan priestess who is willing to lead rituals. Contact Sarah at 503-427-8269 or through Facebook/Twitter direct message, or with this online email form.
