It could be titled ( officially ) > St. Catherine of Siena Chapel. It is located at St. Malo Retreat Center in (at least near) Allenspark, Colorado It is also known as "The Chapel on the Rock" and "The Stone Church" because of being built on a huge boulder!

Just about one year ago, November 14, 2011, The retreat suffered major damage from a fire thought to be caused by a build up of gases in a chimney. The retreat, with no damage to the church.

p.s. one can look up more information on the retreat / church if they so desire . . . .

Would you like the title changed, John?


Yes, please.

And Foxster, you are right. Around the forums, it's been called St. Malo's Chapel, but you have the official name right. The official nickname is the "Chapel on the Rock."

The morning I took this shot, I just called it beautiful!

Right now, their web site is just a single apologetic page, due to the fire a year ago. It'd be a shame if they don't come back, though. HPH

Beautiful picture, John. My wife and I always love driving by there just to see that church. What a hidden gem in our country.

By any name a person refers to it as, it is beautiful! If you have not went up to it / stepped inside, I would strongly suggest that you do, if you ever have the time / get a chance! We usually are not right near it at dawn or dusk and prime picture times so we appreciate all the wonderful pictures that others here have shared! Thanks for the beautiful pictures you all have posted!

Fox

p.s. Yes, best wishes towards being able to rebuild the retreat!
