Thirty Anglican Chaplains Walk Into A Bar

 Which we did, at various times during last week during our annual Retreat.  This crew is a sizeable chunk of the Anglican Military Ordinariate, the body of Anglican Church of Canada chaplains in the Canadian Forces.  The trio in the foreground, from left to right, are BGen John Fletcher, the CF Chaplain General, Bishop Peter Coffin, the Bishop Ordinary to the CF, and Colonel Nigel Shaw, our Ordinariate Archdeacon.  Yours truly is in there somewhere.  In our glory days, there were over fifty full time Anglican chaplains in the CF, but demographics are being a little unkind to us of late.    If you’re an Anglican priest and could picture yourself amid such a handsome and gallant bunch, we should talk.

Super picture and excellent title for the post.By the way can you suggest a collective noun for Anglican Chaplains?
