A Message from the Command Chaplain

Welcome to the Command Religious Program of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar! Our mission is to help meet the spiritual needs of our Active Duty warfighters and their families according to the First Amendment of the Constitution. The Navy Chaplain Corps is the second oldest Corps in the Navy (next to the Marines) and has been an integral part of all Marine Corps and Navy activities since 1775. As the Psalmists says in Ps.33:12 "Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord".

From the first sermon ever preached on a ship, Navy Chaplains have been there to promote, provide and facilitate everyone's religious rights and quality of life who serve this wonderful country. For instance, previous Chaplains were instrumental in making positive changes in our Navy by implementing getting rid of disciplinary whipping, replacing grog with coffee and even help setting up the Naval Academy.

This web page is designed to help those who are searching for help, whether spiritually, family, or Command related. We are available for a wide range of services from Worship related services to counseling to simple referrals. As the only Active Duty component of all service organizations, we have a unique position to be an advocate for each Marine and Sailor to the Command. Furthermore, we are the only place where there is complete confidentiality for those on Active Duty and dependents.

Please feel free to browse this web page and the many resources we offer.  There is something for everyone on this web source!

God Bless.
