    Chaplain Capt. Sean Magnuson, a Catholic priest assigned to U.S. Forces-Iraq, leads a sermon during a Catholic Mass at Contingency Operating Site Marez, Feb. 6. Magnuson, from the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minn., deployed to U.S. Division-North in January to provide regular Mass for Catholic parishioners at COS Marez and Contingency Operating Base Speicher. As one of a handful of Catholic Army chaplains in Iraq, Magnuson said providing Mass to the faithful at various bases throughout the country is important. “Me coming means a lot to the faithful,” he said. “To those who practice their faith regularly, to have their priest there, is very good and is a happy occasion for them. My hope is to strengthen them in their faith.” Magnuson said he plans to conduct Mass at COS Marez on a monthly basis.
