Several years ago, I read about the Miraculous Staircase at Loretto Chapel and found its story to be very interesting. This September, we visited the chapel on a Sunday morning to see the staircase. Three dollars gained us entry to what was once a Catholic chapel until it was deconsecrated in 1971. It is now a museum preserving the staircase and the chapel. The chapel is beautiful in its own right and the staircase is beautiful and intriguing. Whether you’re looking at the staircase from a scientific standpoint, a religious standpoint or any standpoint, you cannot help but to stop and contemplate the accomplishment that took place here. You don’t need to spend much time here to appreciate this attraction, but you just may want to stay awhile as the chapel is a very peaceful place.
Call ahead though, if possible, as the chapel closes for special events. We arrived at 4:20pm the day before and the chapel closed at 4:15pm, hence our Sunday morning visit, which was very much worth it.
