Seminarian Application

The Rev. Mr. Steven Booth from the Diocese of Fall River, a Navy Chaplain Candidate, at his diaconal ordination in May 2019.

Thank you for your interest in becoming affiliated with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS) as either a Seminarian Chaplain Candidate or a Co-Sponsored Seminarian Chaplain Candidate (Cfr. “Paths to Chaplaincy” under “Vocation” to the left for an in depth explanation of these opportunities).

The AMS seminarian application has multiple sections. You will be able to temporarily suspend the completion of the application and return at a later date to continue with submitting all of the required information. Additionally, you are responsible for asking your Ordinary or Superior and your Rector to send a letter of permission addressed to Archbishop Broglio, the Archbishop for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA.

NOTE: This application is for the endorsement of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, only! You must contact the specific branch of the military that you are interested in joining for their separate chaplain candidacy application.

To begin the application process you must first register in the myAMS portal as an applicant. After registering, you will be able to use your new username and password to select and begin the Seminarian application.
