Stilurdoy, May 30, 1972 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Airport chapels provide an essential ministry lly 11EV. DAVID J'OLING dictionary Uial we use defines "chapel" as "a place of worship subordinate to a church, especially in a col- lege or hospital." Wliile hospi- tals and colleges may head tlie list in number, military and prison chapels are everywhere present As the religious community becomes more and more in- stitutionalized, chapels are bound Lo flourish as an exten- sion of the church The newest chapels, rath- er the newest outposts where chapels have been established, are at (lie major airports. In New York, Boston and Chi- cago's O'Hare, there is a regu- lar program of worship service am) i m e counsel offered by clergymen. In each setting, the approach does vary, but the activity and ministry is def- initely on the increase. In New York, the Protestant- Calliolic-Jewish houses ol wor- sliip form a dramatic cluster in the outer reaches of Ken- nedy. The architecture- of the buildings and the central loca- tion is most appealing. But Kennedy has traffic prob- lems and one can hardly walk from any of the air terminals to the chapels without dashing across four-lane target areas. One must take bus or cab to reach the location, discourag- ing to those who have less than half an hour for such a visit. At Logan Field in Boston, the chapel can be reached by a five- or 10-minute walk from al- most any direction. Our last visit was during a Sunday af- ternoon and the chapel was crowded, with a wedding in progress. Some 70 or CO people had gathered for a Roman Catholic service and the priest and chapel was just what they wanted. It appears that the airport chapels (there are only three 48th Alberta conference of UC at Olds May 26-29 The annual meeting of Alberta Conference, United Church of Canada will he held May 26 to 29 at the Olds Agri- cultural College. Approximately 401) delegates from every part of the prov- ince as well as such places as Ycllowknife and Whitehorse, N.W.T. will lie attending the annual meeting. Theme of the meeting is Hope Is People people feeling, car- ing, persisting, trusting, lovin and celebrating. Tliis theme i expected to permeate all as peels of the four-day meetin as various divisions in the Con ference debate issues and prol. lems at all levels of the churcl and of society.

(CP) The Anglican diocese of Huron has been asked to go on record as opposing intercommunion among tlie Anglican, United and Christian (Disciples of Clirist) churches "until there is a state- ment of matters on faith and order acceptable to all three churches." A resolution lo this affect was approved here Iry dele gates lo the 113th session of the synod. Tlie intercommunion would mutually recognize each other's ministers as equals.

Backers of the motion con- tended that the first draft of the proposed plan of union did not adequately safeguard the epis- copal nature of the Anglican Church and that no agreement has been reached on the poinls of doctrinal disagreement be- tween (he Anglican and United churches regarding communion. Tlie Anglican Church at present does not recognize a communion service conducted by a non-episcopally-ordained priest. Priests in the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches are ordained by the bishop of their diocese. The United Church does not have bishops.

At O'Hare, the chapel is four levels down in the basement, surrounded by steam pipes and air-conditioning vents. Yet a lively, attractive worship cen- tre has been created and at- tendance is good. At 0'IIare, the ecumenical touch is what counts. Protes- tants and Catholics share fully Die same facilities, ivjlh the Community of Our Lady of Lorelo served lull time by Father John J. Keough.
