Chaplain Williams welcomes Bishop Spencer
932nd Airlift Wing Chaplain (Maj.) Michael Williams greets special guest Bishop Richard Spencer, the Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Military Services, who visited Scott Air Force Base recently. He hosted a round table with installation chaplains to learn more about ministry needs and opportunities on base. Chaplain Williams represented the Air Force Reserve Citizen Airmen who train on reserve weekends in Illinois. Discussions on December 19, 2019, focused on deployments, resiliency, chapel corps recruitment and retention, as well as ensuring religious freedom for all service members. “I am grateful for the strong relationship that exists between the many different components of the chaplain corps here at Scott. The fact that we had active duty Army and Air Force, as well as Guard and Air Force Reserve representation at this forum is a good example of that coordination,” Chaplain Williams said.
