6/7 OVER STORY: CHAPLAINS WHO RIDE THE RAILS:

While religion is declining in the U.S, the use of chaplains is growing in workplaces as employers see spiritual care as crucial to employee well-being…..the roots of chaplaincy in the U.S. date back to the Revolutionary War, then found their way to the workplace over time.

How they help New York transit workers deal with trauma and tragedy on the job, and introduce a way of supporting employees in the workplace - there are now 68 chaplains serving this New York Transit system.

FROM THE EDITOR: p.3 Mention public transit in many of America’s major cities and you are likely to get an earful…..Consider that Public transit, too, has taken a beating during the pandemic.  Diana Kruzman reports (p.22) that America’s only corps of transit chaplains helps workers deal with stress, trauma, and tragedies on the rails and streets.
