The founder of Camp St. Malo, Monsignor Joseph Bosetti, had for years entertained an idea that one day he would build a chapel on this site. In 1916 he and two friends observed a falling meteor during the night and in his search for the remnants the next morning, he came across a large rock. The beauty of the land inspired the priest and he remembered Jesusâ€™ words to Peter: â€œUpon this rock, I will build my Church.â€ (Matt 16:18).

Chapel On The Rock at the St. Malo Mission near Estes Park in Colorado. Beautiful and peaceful setting. A very popular spot for religious retreats and Catholic weddings. When traveling to Estes Park we never pass this spot without stopping. Today was especially beautiful.
