Airport Chapels

Sun Dec 24, 2006 5:56 am

TLV Terminal 3 will have a new chapel: a Muslim mosque will be build at gallery floor. Today there are two synagogues in use in the terminal.
How many chapels are in use at your home airport, and which rules its plays ?

At DTW there is one in the NW World Gateway. It is hard to find, but there is a sign for it. It looks like a conference room with no tables. I once saw a rabbi in there having a small service with a few people. Here are some photos of the Chapel at STL.  pray

JAX has one....it used to be called the Chapel, until some fat mouthed woman (not sure, she may have been a lawyer), bitched and moaned until they renamed it the "Meditation Room".

Stupid P.C. people  Yeah sure

Interestingly, I was tranferring at IAH today and they had an announcement on the PA system I heard twice during my layover that they have an interfaith chapel, I think they said that it is in terminal C, I know they said that it was open 24 hours a day to all. I knew that several airports had chapels or prayer rooms, but I hadn't heard them promoted over the PA system.

Hi all

In Manchester UK, we have two in Terminals 1 and 2.

They are used by all religions and the doors are open 24 hours a day.

BOS has the Our Lady of the Airways chapel that is part of the Boston archdiocese and has daily and Sunday masses. It's located near the tower entrance I think.

JFK T4 has a whole bunch clustered together... I believe there is a Jewish chapel, Catholic chapel, Protestant chapel and a meditation room of some sort -- maybe for Moslems or for Budhists?

Why do they have Chapels at airports? Or for that matter any worship place at an airport?

Going by the safety statistics, there is more need of a chapel in your own car or the local bus terminal!

As a matter of fact, many major bus stations in Israel have small synagogues in them... Jerusalem and Tel Aviv come to mind  Smile.

Toronto's YYZ has one, called an Interfaith Centre, located on the Arrivals level in the main concourse of Terminal 1. I don't know if there is one in Terminal 3.

ORD, DFW, and HKG are three places which have places of worship....

SFO has the "Berman Room"..used basically to relax..but one could pray in there also...at least that's an "unofficial" policy.

Do any airport chapels have an organ? (or any other musical instrument?)

I heard an announcement over the PA at ORD for a non denominational christian service on Sunday the 3rd of December. I would have went, but didn't have the time.

ARN has one chapel. Don't know if it's for all religions or if it's a christian chapel though.

DEN has one (or at least used to have one) on level 6 of the main terminal near the southeast corner. I've never been in it, but I've been by it. I believe it is an interfaith (Christian, Islamic, and Jewish) chapel.

SYD has a 'prayer room' on level 3 of Terminal 1, which is frequented by many travellers. Unfortunately, the Bible has to be replaced regularly, to the point where no prayer books will soon be installed. So much for the 'tolerance' of others...
