Since its very first session in 1789, the House of Representatives has had a chaplain. This clergy person holds one of the few, official nonpartisan positions on the Hill and ministers to a unique congregation of elected officials, many serving far from home. We talk to the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the 60th person to hold the position, about his role in Congress.
