Stone Church near Estes Park


Monsignor Joseph Bosetti came upon this location while in search of a meteor  he had seen the previous night.The beauty of the area inspired the priest and remembering words that Jesus said to Peter, “Upon this rock, I will build my Church“.  The large granite rock formation that he wanted to build the church on was about to be blasted away, and he spent decades looking for funding and support. Finally the dream became a reality.


The church was visited by Pope John Paul II visited in 1993.
