The Protestant and Catholic chapels exist to support the free exercise of religion for all military members, dependents, and other authorized personnel stationed aboard the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC). However, these chapels can also be used for a limited number of other events when the chapels are not in use.

Religious services and religious education take priority over every event except memorial services/funerals.

There is no fee for chapel usage or Religious Program Specialist and Chaplain support. Non-religious personal celebrations (i.e., birthday parties, anniversaries, etc.) are not permitted in the chapels. The event must not violate good order and discipline as determined by the MCAGCC Director of Religious Ministries and the MCAGCC Commanding General. 

Please contact the Chapel Leading Petty Officer at 760-830-6464 to obtain a Chapel Usage Request form.
