Catholic airport chaplaincy

The Catholic airport chaplaincy has been at Frankfurt Airport for 50 years. We would like to offer people who are traveling by rail and air or work here permanently, a sense of trust. Do you need help, orientation or comfort? We at the Catholic airport chaplaincy are there for you.  

Everyone is welcome, regardless of origin, skin color, religious conviction or sexual orientation. We do not proselytise, but try to help you within the scope of our possibilities.
