Take State Route (SR) 179 south from Uptown Sedona to Chapel Road. Turn left and drive to the Chapel driveway/entrance. Parking attendants then guide you to an available spot. There is not much parking so there will probably be a wait sometimes.
If you are in West Sedona, go on to Highway 89A N toward Uptown Sedona and then, take Highway 179 south from Sedona toward the Village of Oak Creek. Turn left on Chapel Road. The Chapel of the Holy Cross is at the end of the road.Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men and be a living reality. “Marguerite Brunswig Staude”
