Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona Aug 12, 2008
The Church of the Rock is the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona. Built on two pinnacled spur rocks approximately 250 feet high. It juts our of a thousand foot red rock wall representing the solid Rock of Peter in the Bible. The concept of building the chapel was Marguerite Bruswig's. The New York native with three names – Margueritte Bruswig Staude came up with the idea in 1934, the chapel was completed in 1956. Staude conceived the idea while traveling through Sedona, where she was taken by the beauty of the land. It was to be a monument to faith. A spiritual fortress guarded only by God, and aimed at bringing back lost souls to God.
The chapel is a testimony of great architectural achievement. It is a great place of meditation, a pilgim place for many catholics. It is but a small chapel, a great reminder to many to renew their faith. It has a small gift shop below.
I highly recommend a stop here if you visit Sedona. I had a great time with the travbuddies I traveled with. I was able to light a candle for my Dad and brother, both deceased.
