House of Worship Theme: USAFA Cadet Chapel - Inside

by Marsha April. 07, 2010 31591 views

The Cadet Chapel [usafa.edu]
United States Air Force Academy
Colorado Springs, Colorado


Please see my post of the OUTSIDE of the USAFA Cadet Chapel [photoblog.com].

Among the faiths represented in the United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel are Christian (Protestant and Roman Catholic), Jewish, Buddhist, and Muslim. This spring another worship area for cadets practicing Earth-centered religions was added on the hillside above the chapel.

The Protestant area of the chapel:

Looking up toward the ceiling….more “jets.”

This window looks out over the “quad” where old aircraft are displayed.

The Roman Catholic worship area:

In the Catholic section, a computer generated “Shroud of Turin” sculpture - taken awkwardly through a small window in a door.

The Jewish area of the chapel is circular with paintings all around. (Best enlarged).

The Buddhist area of the chapel - a sign just outside the door of this room welcomes any person who wishes to come in to pray or meditate. (Best enlarged).

These two posts have been so interesting Marsha. Thank you for illustrating the different aspects with your stunning photography. I think I know which of the part of the interior you felt was the most "you". I think that is where I too would sit quietly.

Excellent, excellent... my mouth is still open. Not only outside, but inside, too, the archidecture is breathtaking. And I find the idea to create an area for other creeds very original and tolerant.
Of course, and as always, you gave your special contribution to highlight this beauty.

This entire set is fabulous! I love the first one and the fifth one - interiors of the chapels. How can anything that is so serene be so bold and bright? GREAT post!

What a beautiful chapel! I love the Shroud area. Brenda has interviewed one of the men (a Jewish photographer) who was one of those allowed to examine the shroud several years ago. Interesting stuff!
