About Us


The Metropolitan Washington Airports Interfaith Chapels:
– Provide pastoral guidance for those who are hurting
– Intercede in resolving personal conflicts
– Conduct religious services at both airports
– Provide a trauma team in cases of catastrophic loss
– Provide a quiet place for private prayer, meditation and religious observances



The Chapels at Ronald Reagan Washington National and Dulles International Airports offer a quiet oasis away from the rush and demands of travel and work. This ministry was founded as a spiritual and theological resource for the thirty-eight million passengers and twenty-eight thousand employees who frequent and work at the two airports that serve our nation’s capitol.

All persons are welcome — from employees who come for a few minutes break, to passengers and other visitors who feel the need to pray and to read. The chapels are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Chaplaincy is staffed by ordained clergy and trained lay volunteers. For those who need additional, outside help, our chaplains provide a bridge to community resources and churches throughout the greater Washington DC metro area.

The Chaplaincy was founded in 1994 by a group of business professionals. Robert Mercure, an engineer with NASA, was the founding chairman and continues to serve on the Board of Directors.
