How to request the use of Chapel facilities
Unit Activities or Events: All requests for events or training should be scheduled 30 days prior to event
- Unit activities can be planned between 45 to 60 days prior to the event, but should be scheduled no later than 30 days prior.
- A chaplain sponsor is required for all unit/organization activities.
- Any Training or Religious Activity Requests that are received less than 30 days in advance cannot be guaranteed and may require a memorandum requesting exception to policy signed by an O-3 or higher and will be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Once the chapel facility is reserved, a confirmation e-mail or phone call will be made to the point of contact for the event. Be sure to provide a good contact number and e-mail.
- Requests will not be put on the calendar without a complete request form turned-in.
- The Sponsoring Chaplain or their assistant MUST BE PRESENT at all events they sponsor. The Unit UMT is responsible for making coordination with the Key Custodian/Chapel NCOIC for the keys and a copy of the approved request. The Unit UMT will also be responsible for ensuring the Chapel is cleaned after the event.
- Visitor Control Center guest access requests for non DOD ID card holders should be requested directly from the VCC.
