CHAPEL VISITOR Is the title given to Mrs, Furman Harrison's Job as she, left, explains opportunities for religions service available at Ft. Rucker, Alabama, to Mrs. Walter Aplin. It is a part of a new program of the Army Aviation Center Chaplain Section which seeks to discover the religious preference of re- cent arrivals on post and then help to enlist them in the various activities. Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. Aplin are both from Florala, Alabama. FORT RUCKER'S PROGRAM SELECTED FOR Announcement has been made by the chief of Chaplains, De- partment of the Army, that a 'program from Fort Rucker's chaplain section, directed by Chaplain (Colonel) Burton G. Hatch, is one of three selected for use at Army installations. The three are the top sug- gestions made during a cam- paign initiated in 1971 to garner ideas from post chaplains for new methods of ministry to sup- port the spiritual needs of mili- tary communities. Originally, Fort Rucker's proposal, called "Lay Parti- cipation and Leadership," was one of 14 prototypes choses for development. Its merit was proven during a test period from November 1971 through June 1972, and final judgment was based on the afteraction report forwarded to higher headquarters by the project of- ricer, Chaplian (Captain) Roy N, Mathis. The object' of the program is to locate, enroll, train, and utilize lay personnel in reli- gious activities at the Army Aviation Center. That is ac- complished through the employ- ment of a "chapel visitor" who makes the initial contact with all new personnel moving into family housing units on vest. ARM Y USE Based on information ob- tained from a survey card given to the family at the post hous- ing office, the chapel visitor prepares a packet tailored to the family's needs. For in- stance, if the new arrivals are of the Catholic faith, the packet will include a schedule of ser- vices, a letter of welcome from a Catholic chaplain, and cards to determine where and how the family would like to serve in the chapel program. An important part of the plan is the follow-up action that is taken. This is done by the cha- pel visitor, as well as by unit chaplains, program directors, and other religious leaders. Their participation is enlisted by the memorandums provided them by the chapel visitor after the first contact. Those meetings with new fa- milies have been made since March by Mrs. Furman Har- rison of Ft. Rucker. Working out of the Religious Education Center, she averages three visits a day, according to Chap- lain Mathis. He stated, "This new pro- gram is one of the main rea- sons for religious participation on post doubling during Fis- cal Year 1972." He is now preparing a man- ual, setting forth guidelines for "Lay Participation and Lea- dership." It will be sent to the Office of the Chief of Chaplains for reproduction and distribu- tion to other Army Installations. SGT.
