Q&A

 

1. When is the Chapel open?

The Chapel is open every day from 5:00 a.m. to midnight.

2. Where is the Chapel?

Once through Security, proceed to the Main Terminal Atrium (Food Court) and take the stairs to the 3rd floor (elevator access available).  Head to the hallway to your left (away from the USO) and the entrance to the Auditorium will be the 2nd door on the right.

Please take a moment to sign the Guestbook so the organization is able to record the number of those visiting the Chapel each year.  Thank you!

3. We have little children.  Can we visit the Chapel?

YES!  Both travelers and those working at the airport – anyone in need of a few moments of calm are welcomed and encouraged to visit.

4. Do you offer any Sunday Services?

Catholic Mass:                        8:30 a.m & 10:30 a.m.
Prayer & Worship Service:     9:30 a.m.

All Sunday Services are held in the Airport Auditorium.

5. Are you going to try and convert me?

No.  Our goal is to attend to the pastoral needs of users and employees of the USO, airport and airlines – those seeking a sympathetic ear, those in need of comfort or help, those in need of hope without asking for anything in return, without asking if  they are Christian, Jew, Muslim, Atheist, rich or poor, white, black, brown or yellow 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

6. How do I get in touch with a Chaplain?

If you are facing an EMERGENCY at CLT airport and seek the help of a Chaplain, please call: 704-816-9554 or 704-724-7344

GEORGE SZALONY, DIRECTOR: 704-816-9554 (24/7)
ALICE WHITE, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR: 704-724-7344 (24/7)

7. Are all your Chaplains priests?

The CLT Airport is served by a team of 12 ordained or licensed Priests, Rabbi, (3) Ministers and (5) Permanent Deacons plus (6) pastoral associates.  The organization does not offer a salary or stipend to any of the Chaplains.  The Director (a permanent Deacon) receives a stipend directly from the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte.

We value the worth and dignity of all people and the core virtues of their faith tradition.  We seek to provide pastoral care and ministry with the same investment that we give to members of our own religious body.
