A most unusual church
Chapel of the Holy Cross
A special use permit was required and this chapel was built in 1956 in 18 months and at the cost of $300,000.
The American Institute of Architects gave the Chapel its Award of Honor in 1957
In 2007, Arizonans voted the Chapel to be one of the Seven Man-Made Wonders of Arizona
In the sculptor's words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men (and women) and be a living reality.”
