Please share your favorite memories (written, photos, or video)! You can use these questions as thought starters:

  • When was your first visit to the Vail Interfaith Chapel? Who was with you? What as the occasion?
  • What role has the Vail Interfaith Chapel played in your life, whether it was religious or non-religious?
  • What does it mean to return to the Vail Interfaith Chapel? How is the experience incorporated into your life?

 

Please send your memories and snapshots to us! Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Keep it brief. Submissions should be less than 300 words.
  2. Include up to 3 images. Photos make the most of every story, and some are so good they can stand on their own. We prefer to have these uploaded as JPEG files with a minimum of 300 dpi resolution and no larger than 3 MB.  Electronic submissions are safest and best, you may also mail stories and photos* to us at Vail Interfaith Chapel, 19 Vail Road, Vail, CO 81657

*If sending original photographs or other documents you would like to have returned, please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

 

We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for sharing your stories and being a part of the Vail Interfaith Chapel’s history!  GIVE NOW

It is also the community center for the Town of Vail – a cultural and historical icon use by over 50,000 people annually. After 50+ years of constant use,  improvements are needed to improve the building’s structural and aesthetic integrity.

– 34,000 residents and guests attend religious services annually

– 100 families served with emergency shelter in winter storms in past 5 years

– 4,200 fans at 16 Bravo! Vail concerts and discussions each year

– 10,608 people annually attend 14 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week

– $15 million minimum annual revenue driven to wedding-related businesses through the Vail Valley

The Vail Interfaith Chapel and Ministry Building are used for non-religious purposes approximately 60% of the time.
