  • located not far from Trump golf course. It is a very beautiful stained glass church. Worth a stop if driving by on the Palos Verdes coast drive. 
  • A MUST VISIT, esp if you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan. The view is breathtaking, the chapel is amazingly beautiful and serene - which is exactly why we were married here back in 1990! 
  • My friend had their wedding here and its has one of the best view by the ocean. The little chapel is perfect for small and intimate occasion and highly recommended for weddings.

  • I went to my friends wedding today. It was gorgeous! First when I got there around 11am, it was kind of cloudy which is perfect condition to shoot nice photos I heard :) We were waiting and saw the bride in the bride waiting room. She was so beautiful. Also there were seating area that has ocean view outside near chapel. Chapel was surrounded by many pine trees and the glass Chapel looked so beautiful. It is a perfect place to do wedding. I saw the inscription of Lord's prayer in the stone wall inside. This is first time I have visited here and photos attached is low quality camera so it doesn't justify actually beauty of this place.
  • This place is absolutely gorgeous! Photos alone can't justify how serene, magical and beautiful this place is. Come and see for yourself, or take a sit inside the chapel and just be for a moment. Wish I live closer so I can visit often and enjoy the serenity and beauty of this place.
  • Beautiful little chapel with incredible ocean cliff view. A good place for a relaxing afternoon.
  • Gorgeous and peaceful. The redwood trees outside the glass walls combined with the lush green foliage along the inside create the feeling that the walls aren't even there. The views of the Pacific Ocean are spectacular, and the gardens around the church are beautiful. This is a very unique place that is definitely worth seeing.
  • I recently went for a wedding at the chapel. The parking is free and a generous amount of spots are available. The grounds the chapel are on are lovely. Lots of trees including Redwoods and a great view of the cliffs and the Pacific Ocean.
