Congratulations to Sister Mary Judine Lambert, SND, on receiving her Chaplain Board Certification by the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC).  Sister Mary Judine is currently Acting Director of Mission Integration for St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, Kentucky (a SND sponsored ministry).

Certification by the NACC is a great achievement.  Sister Judine attained this certification by meeting the following qualifications:

  • Earning a Master's degree
  • Completing four units of clinical pastoral education
  • Extensive writing and interviewing
  • Recommendations; and 
  • Vote by the NACC

Recently, St. Claire Regional Medical Center received a letter from the National Association of Catholic Chaplains which states "Ministry to the sick and troubled now requires the same professionalism of preparation and demonstration of competence by ministers in pastoral care as health care requires of its professionals.  Our Standards and Procedures for certification are therefore demanding and are updated through periodic revisions.  It is therefore a credit to your institution that Sister (Judine) Lambert has sought and achieved this certification."

Please join us as we congratulate Sister Mary Judine Lambert on her hard work and dedication in achieving this prestigious certification.
