The Chaplain of the United States Coast Guard (CHCG) is the senior chaplain of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and is attached to USCG Headquarters in Washington, D.C. as a United States Navy Chaplain Corps officer who reports directly to the Commandant of the Coast Guard. The current Chaplain of the Coast Guard is Captain Gary P. Weeden.
The Chaplain of the Coast Guard serves as the Commandant's senior advisor on matters pertaining to chaplains and the free exercise of religion by USCG personnel. Chaplains provide religious ministry, advocate for and promote the well-being of USCG personnel, and serve as command liaison officers to civilian religious leaders, communities, organizations and agencies.
The USCG does not have its own chaplain corps. United States Navy and Public Health Service chaplains from the United States Navy Chaplain Corps are assigned to the USCG to serve in USCG units. The USCG Chaplains Orientation Manual provides guidance for chaplains assigned to these duties. Chaplains come from many different faiths and may be ordained or appointed as ministers, priests, imams, and rabbis.
