Welcome to APCA

Welcome to APCA!

“The Alberta Pastoral Care Association promotes quality pastoral care though an amalgam of professional chaplains and/or spiritual care practitioners, clergy, trained volunteer chaplains, and trained lay pastoral care/religious community visitors, who connect and network to provide support and encouragement for each other and who work together to provide education and training opportunities at a non-professional level for pastoral caregivers.” – APCA Mission Statement




APCA President, Rev. Kevin G. Powell
