Saint Malo--The Chapel on the Rock

Just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the prettiest, most scenic churches I've ever seen: Saint Malo.

Built on a large rock of granite in 1935, the church is a beautiful setting for small Catholic weddings.

In 1993 Pope John Paul II visited and bestowed his personal blessing on the chapel.

The stained glass window inside depicts St Catherine and was installed in 1937.

Also on site is a retreat center that caters to both groups and individuals.

In 1999 the chapel was designated by Boulder County as a historic site.

No matter what your religious beliefs, it is easy to appreciate the beauty of this lovely chapel.
