Chaplain Corps

  • CHAPEL SERVICES ARE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:  The Installation commander and Chaplain Corps have made the difficult decision to suspend Chapel services at Los Angeles AFB and Fort MacArthur until further notice.  Properly balancing the needs of many is challenging and we do not make these decisions lightly as we do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.  Look forward to our uplifting messages that we will provide via command leadership channels.  As always, please feel free to contact the chapel at 310-653-5080.

The Chaplain Office at Los Angeles Air Force Base provides a wide range of services and support for the military, their family members and Department of Defense employees.

Comprehensive religious and pastoral services including daily ministry, visitation, counseling and weekday religious education and worship, are available.
