Hours of Operation

The Chapel of the Holy Cross welcomes several million Pilgrims and tourists every year. It is a place of great beauty and peace.
Built to a twin pinnacled spur, about 250 feet high, jutting out a thousand foot rock wall, “solid as the rock of Peter” the building of the Chapel was completed in April, 1956.
Please help us maintain its atmosphere by maintaining silence, not eating or drinking, and leaving your pets outside when entering the Chapel building.
