  • While certainly biased, as we are members of the parish, the striking Chapel and main sanctuary are on the Historic Register, and for good reason. So much has transpired within these welcoming walls.....  more »
  • Though we are Roman Catholics we visit this wonderful chapel every time we we are in Chapel Hill. The building is amazing, not only from the outside but also from inside. Most of all however we like.....  more »

  • Nice inside. Went for a social gathering. This would be a great place for large gatherings and such.
  • Chapel of the Cross is a main stay in the realms of community activism. When the board of election picks your church as a polling location, it's pretty safe to say you are recognized in the community. The church is an amazing structure. The more I look, the more I see. Even without the Moorehead Planetarium next door this place on it's own is amazing. They are well respected in our community.
