Religious Activities

Navy chaplains maintain contact with local leaders of other religious communities in order to meet the needs of military and civilian personnel, including international students. Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Jewish services are conducted throughout the week at the Naval Station’s Chapel of Hope as well as support and outreach to the Islamic community.
