The photos in this gallery were shot at the United States Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs. The chapel was designed by architect Walter Netsch. The chapel is a non-denominational Protestant house of worship. What people may not realize is that along with the main Protestant chapel that in the lower level there’s a Catholic chapel, a Jewish chapel, a Buddhist chapel and an all faiths meeting room for small groups. As you enter the main chapel upstairs, you get the feeling of being in a spaceship. The ceilings are about 100 feet tall with beautiful stained glass windows and a huge pipe organ. Looking from the inside out is incredible. A few of years ago I had the opportunity to attend a beautiful military wedding of one of my son’s best friends in this chapel – an event not to be missed. So if you are ever in Colorado Springs, visit the United States Air Force Academy Chapel. The visitor’s center and chapel are open daily and on weekends all year except when closed on major holidays. You will not be disappointed.
On Friday, August 28, 2009 the United States Air Force Academy Chapel celebrated its 50 year anniversary of the start of its construction. The chapel was completed in 1963.
