Chaplaincy Program at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport
The Interfaith Airport Chapel at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a refuge for anxious travelers and workers looking for some quiet time of reflection. The Catholic Archdiocese Airport Chaplaincy team is established under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Atlanta to support the Interfaith Airport Chapel at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta international Airport.
The Interfaith Airport Chaplaincy’s purpose is to provide a “ministry of presence” to the employees and travelers at the airport.
The Archdiocese of Atlanta provides support to aid in this ministry. This support includes participating in honor guards for receiving remains of fallen soldiers, set up areas for travelers to have a Mass for their group, assist in crises events and being a presence to employees.
Our goal is to provide this service by having Priests, Deacons and lay people available to serve in this “ministry of presence” at the airport. In addition, our goal would also include having Priests and Deacons who would administer the Sacraments of the Catholic Church to employees and travelers.
The Interfaith Airport Chapels provide a sanctuary in the world’s busiest airport. The Interfaith Airport Chapels are available to all faiths for reading, meditation and prayer. The Chapels are open to passengers, visitors, and airport and airline employees.
Currently there are about 63,000 employees and a quarter of a million passengers passing through every day.
Chaplaincy services are available throughout the week to assist the traveling public and airport employees with their spiritual needs.
