Church Reflections



 Chapel of the Holy Cross was built upon one of the colorful red rocks (about 250 feet high) in 1956 in Sedona, Arizona. It was made to blend into and no distract the beautiful scenery.


Reflections of the red rock are shown on the front windows near the entrance while the middle windows on the inside show a cloudy sky.
