UAW Region 1 Chaplaincy Council Mission Statement

Our mission is to represent UAW Region 1 members in a manner which reflects our commitment of “Caring In The Workplace” and community. In doing so, we are guided by a spiritual belief that everyone’s purpose is to serve others in a capacity which upholds the principles of Integrity, Honesty, Accountability and Responsibility.

As your Chaplain, it is our assignment to prepare for the needs of our members, their families and the community; to educate, advise and empower not just at superficial levels, but also at the core of the “Whole Person.”

This is our solemn obligation to the membership regardless of their faith, religious affiliations or traditions.
