Areas of a Garrison Chapel.
A chapel consists of any Government-owned or leased building on land, or a space within a larger
facility, that has been designed or designated to be used for worship services.
In order for you, the chaplain assistant, to return the chapel to a neutral setting, it is essential for you to
be familiar with the names which are used to designated different parts of the chapel. The areas of the
chapel are described below:
Narthex. This is a vestibule leading to the nave of a chapel. It is the area immediately inside
the front door of the chapel. The narthex is also called the entrance area of the chapel and is
separate from the nave or main seating area of the chapel
