There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Missouri
The Precious Moments Chapel is truly a special place. Since its opening in 1989, it has welcomed millions of visitors. A beautiful vision by artist and Precious Moments creator Sam Butcher, the Chapel was inspired by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in Rome. Located just outside of Carthage, in the scenic Ozarks, the chapel is adorned by amazing murals, angels, stained glass and other artwork by Butcher. It sits on beautifully landscaped grounds with gardens and statues that truly evoke a feeling of peace and tranquility.
