Chapel of the Transfiguration
In response to the pandemic, we’ve made the heartbreaking decision to close the Chapel of the Transfiguration for the summer season 2020. We sincerely hope you will return to this sacred place to rest, pray, or reflect at a time when it is safe to do so.
We offer these prayers:
Almighty and everlasting God, you made the universe with all it’s marvelous order, its atoms, worlds and galaxies, and the infinite complexity of living creatures: Grant that, as we probe the mysteries of your creation, we may come to know you more truly, and more surely fulfill our role in your eternal purpose, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Climber's Blessing: Bless, O Lord, these ropes, ice axes, and other instruments; so those who will use them on the rough cliffs of the mountain in ice, snow, and storms may be preserved from any fall or danger, may successfully reach the summit, and safely return to their own, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

This small log chapel, built in 1925, offers spectacular views of the Teton Mountain Range and a majestic place to pray. The Chapel will seat 65 people with additional seating outside, weather permitting.
Holy Communion: Sundays (Closed Summer 2020)
The rustic Episcopal Chapel of the Transfiguration, constructed in 1925, held the first services on July 26 of that year. The Chapel provided spiritual refreshment to dude ranchers and tourists that flocked to the chapel to worship and gather as a community. Today, the Chapel continues to draw people, and services are held every Sunday during the summer from Memorial Day through September.
A grand location for a wedding, this rustic log chapel offers spectacular views and the window over the altar frames the Grand Teton. The Chapel seats 65 people with additional seating outside, weather permitting. The Chapel of the Transfiguration is available for weddings from early June through September, based on the availability of our clergy. We would be delighted if you chose the Chapel of the Transfiguration to be the place you begin the next portion of your life's journey. Please click here for our wedding page and more information.
Garden of Memories
In the summer of 2012, we created a Garden of Memories at the Chapel of Transfiguration for those who would like to repose their cremains on the grounds of this unique sacred place. Facing the Grand Teton and framed by aspen trees, the Garden of Memories will forever honor those who love this place.
Instead of being spread, ashes will be poured into the ground and covered with soil. The names and dates of the deceased will be inscribed on a plaque mounted on a large stone in the Garden. For more, visit the Garden of Memories page.
