The 22nd Conference is the highest annual meeting of major representatives of military chaplaincy of NATO and Partnership for Peace Programme countries.

The topic of the Conference, which has first of all the working, organisational, study, but also social and spiritual dimensions, is "Military Chaplain as Ethical Advisor".

Chaplaincy of Armed Forces of the Czech Republic

Besides representatives of chaplaincies, other military officials, military and civilian experts, will take part and will deliver their presentations.

The tradition of the conference goes back to the beginning of the 1990s of the last century, when the very first conference of NATO military chaplains of this level was convened to Stuttgart, Germany. In 2009, the conference was held in the South Africa even as the World Military Chiefs of Chaplains Conference.

Prague, which hosted this conference in 1997 already, will become historically the very first city, to which chaplains come repeatedly.
