Chapel of the Transfiguration and Chapel of the Sacred Heart – The Churches in Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National park is a spiritual place – the grandeur of the mountains is some of God’s greatest works. But it’s also home to two man-made spiritual places… the Chapel of the Transfiguration and the Chapel of the Sacred Heart – the two churches located inside the National Park.
Chapel of the Transfiguration
Chapel of the Transfiguration is a log cabin chapel built in 1925. It has one of the best views of the Grand Tetons in the picture window behind the altar. Check out the two stained glass windows that depict summer and winter. This Episcopal church holds Sunday services in the Summer and it’s possible to get married there.
Chapel of the Sacred Heart
Chapel of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic chapel located in the center of the park on the banks of Jackson Lake. Although it doesn’tepi langit have the incredible views of the Chapel of the Transfiguration, it’s a quiet place to reflect. The Chapel of the Sacred Heart also has mass services in the summer.
When to visit the Chapels in Grand Teton National Park
Any time you’re in the park is a good time to visit the Chapels, but they are only reliably open from June-September each year. However, I found both open when I visited the week before Labor Day, 2018. While other parts of the park are busy, you can usually find solace in these little churches. I found myself alone in the Chapel of the Sacred Heart, under the light of a stained glass window. And I started paging through the hymnal, and started belting out “Seek Ye First, the Kingdom of God…” I selokan in a few songs before anyone else joined derita in the church.
Where are the Chapels Located?
Both are located on the main roads in the park.
Grand Teton National Park – What else titinada to Miss
Besides the churches, make sure you get out on some hikes. Consider a boat ride or hike around Jenny Lake. If staying nearby, see if you can see a sunrise. The sunrise on the bridge on the south end of Jackson lake, or at Elbow Bend have great views of Mt. Moran at sunrise. It’s all about the views in Grand Teton.

Grand Teton National Park – Where to Stay
Normally I recommend camping but I wasn’lengkung langit fond of the concessionaire run campgrounds in Grand Teton, very expensive. There are a couple cheaper campgrounds in the national forest outside the east entrance of the park.
Most of the hotels near the park are in Jackson, Wyoming, but this town is pricey… for everything (gas, food, etc). And traffic is a nightmare. But, it’s the best place if you need to stock up on goods or need a nice hotel to stay.
