Dear colleagues of IACAC and at the airports worldwide,
I have a very special request for you today:
Munich Airport and with it the Chaplaincy are celebrating their 30th birthday this year!
On this occasion we want to tackle a project.
We would like to decorate the walls in front of our offices with pictures – pictures of many chapels, churches and prayer rooms in / at airports worldwide!
On Sunday, July 24th, the memorial day of St. Christopher, we want to celebrate our 30th anniversary with a religious service, a vehicle blessing and the official opening of the newly designed corridor. It will be wonderful for all the visitors to see the very different religious place at the airports worldwide.
