Faithful to the Cause

The Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Chapel Community welcomes you.  We recognize worship, community and spiritual fitness are key components of Air Force readiness.  Our chaplains and staff oversee three chapels on base, and frequently deploy to serve the Air Force's global, interfaith ministry.



Base Chapels and Services


There are four chapels used by members of the Wright Patterson Chapel Community. The Kittyhawk Chapel is near the Bowling Alley and Commissary on the Kittyhawk Area of the base. The Prairies Chapel is located in the Prairies of Wright Field Housing area.  The Hospital Chapel is located in the basement of the Medical Center on Area A. The AFIT Chapel is located in Bldg 640, Room 201, on Area B. See images at right.

Weddings on Base

  Your wedding is an important event. We want it to be a very special, meaningful experience. To ensure this, we need your cooperation and understanding. We regret the few rules, but your wedding is one of many in our chapels. Weddings are conducted on Saturdays and require scheduling well in advance with our chapel staff. As good stewards, we must ensure that our facilities are kept in superior condition for others. It is the responsibility of the wedding party to inform all invited guests of guidelines to ensure that the sanctity of the chapel is not violated, and that guests and their sponsors comply with access to the base restrictions which help ensure everyone's security.

Base chapel personnel are the approving authority in matters of chapel etiquette, wedding music, picture taking, electrical recording, and the like. Scheduled chapel sponsored programs have priority over requested wedding dates/times. Please contact the chapel staff at 937-257-7427 if you plan to have a wedding on base.
