Vancouver International Airport
Richmond, B.C. Canada
"Our former location, in 1983, was the domestic terminal. Our present location was designed as a chapel when the international terminal was built. This June we will celebrate our 30th anniversary at YVR." (Layne Daggett.)
"The Chapel is hosted by a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers who offer: A friendly face and a helping hand for people who are travelling because of serious illness or the death of a loved one;o relax and reflect ... and share some concerns;A peaceful place o private prayer for all people and all faiths ....
The colorful tapestry on the front wall of the Chapel is titled "Tree of Life" and was made by Mae Runions.
One of the Chaplains can even arrange for airport airline staff to be married in a candlelight wedding in the Airport Chapel or nuptials on the top deck of a 747. (Link 1.)
Thank you: To Airport Chaplain Layne Daggett for information on the Chapel

- 2016 Stats reveal that over 13,000 people entered the Chapel, of whom about 75% were Airport employees.
- The Chaplain team made significant contact with more than 7,000 passengers and employees in the terminals outside the Chapel.
- So, the total number of Chapel connections in 2016 within the YVR Community was over 20,000! Much to be praising God for, eh?)
