Four Chaplains Sunday (Interfaith)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

In February 1943, the U.S.A.T. ship Dorchester was hit by a torpedo near Greenland while transporting over 900 soldiers. The ship’s four chaplains—a Catholic priest, a Methodist minister, a Protestant Reverend, and a Jewish rabbi—helped the men into their life jackets and onto lifeboats. When life jackets ran out, the four gave away their own. They were last seen with their arms linked, praying aloud as the Dorchester sank. They are remembered today with a number of interfaith services.
