Colorado's famous St Malo, Chapel On The Rock with the milky way towering above and the Perseid meteor shower going on in the early morning magical night sky.
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 Jesus� words to Peter: �Upon this rock, I will build my Church.� (Matt 16:18). Vowing one day to build a chapel here, Msgr. Bosetti prayed for nearly 20 years to acquire the funds. The chapel was completed in 1935. In 1993, Pope John Paul II visited the chapel during his trip to Denver for the World Youth Day and bestowed his personal blessing on the chapel.
