Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Chapel


Our military and civilian staff welcomes you to Memorial Chapel. Our mission is to serve active duty, family members, and when available, retired military personnel through timely and professional pastoral care. Your Station’s Chaplain provides this care in close coordination and cooperation with the 2D Marine Aircraft Wing Chaplain.

We provide a variety of worship opportunities, sacramental rites and programs to include baptisms, child dedications, communion, religious education for all ages, and marriage. We also provide pastoral counseling for all authorized personnel. This pastoral counseling is truly confidential for any and all issues brought to our chaplains. Speak to a chaplain for more details on the exclusive nature of this confidentiality.

For appointments or general information please call the main number or visit our office during normal office hours.
