The Madonna di Loreto Chaplaincy

The Airport Chaplaincy “Madonna di Loreto” of the “Enrico Forlanini” Airport of Milano-Linate was canonically founded by decree no. 2392 on 19 June 2002 and signed by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, who was the Archbishop at the time.

Cardinal Martini, in canonically founding the chaplaincy, considered how “In the last few decades, the role of international airports has undergone a radical transformation, in fact they have become real “squares” in which, although fleetingly, millions of people cross with numerous expectations and needs. Since the beginning, the Church has also wanted to be present in this environment, as unusual as it may be. Furthermore, taking into account the special working conditions, it’s not easy for airline, airport and service personnel, to benefit from the usual pastoral structures which are offered by the Church for the Christian growth of each devotee.”

The religious assistance service that the Church offers at the Civil Airport of Milano-Linate through the activities of the chaplaincy, is aimed, first and foremost, at the Airport’s workers (both ground staff and aircrews). However, the presence of a regularly officiated chapel and an available priest, allow services to be extended to some passengers too.
