Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, came up with the concept for this church in the 1930’s. Although she originally hoped to build the chapel in Europe, it wasn’t until her trip to Sedona that she found the perfect site for what would become the Chapel of the Holy Cross, so-named for the cross that dominates the structure. Visitors are positively enamored with the architecture, from the chapel’s position atop a 250-ft.-tall mesa, to the massive glass panes that overlook the rust-colored desert. In fact, due to the chapel’s magnificence, state residents voted it one of the “Seven Man-Made Wonders of Arizona” in 2007.
So no matter what you’re faith or creed, you’ll find something to appreciate at the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Staude predicted that the house of worship, though formally Catholic, would have universal appeal. And truly that prophecy has been fulfilled, as evidenced by the thousands of visitors that make their way here every single year.
