The Chapel on the rock, or Saint Malo chapel. The absolute best find of the day. We were driving down the road and saw this chapel on the side of the road. It is absolutely stunning. It looks like it should be out of a novel or painting. Pope John Paul II visited this chapel in 1993, also seeing its beauty. Some information: During a quest to find the impact site from a falling star in 1916, Monsignor Joseph Bosetti came across a large rock formation just east of Rocky Mountain National Park. With the Biblical phrase upon this rock I will build my church in mind, Bosetti soon began to envision a church on the rock. As with many dreams, lack of funds delayed construction for nearly 20 years. During this time not only did Bosetti keep his dream alive, but struggled with the Colorado Highway Department to keep his rock intact. Eventually, land for the church and retreat center was donated by Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Malo, and Denver Architect, Jacques Benedict, transformed Bosetti’s dream to paper. With Mount Meeker, one of Rocky Mountain National Park’s highest peaks as a backdrop, the Chapel on the Rock took shape, and was dedicated in 1936. Adorned with Giacomo-Mussner statues and Franz Mayer stained-glass, Saint Malo is one of those must see Colorado sights. Camp Saint Malo, a non-profit Catholic retreat, extends invitations to all religions denominations, including groups and individuals.
