Yarnell, Arizona: Shrine of Saint Joseph of the Mountains


About the Shrine:

The Shrine was constructed by a group of lay men and women (not all of whom were Catholic) in the Phoenix area.  The result is Stations of the Cross that are magnificent.

The Shrine miraculously escaped destruction in the Yarnell Hill Fire of 2013, in which 19 firefighters were killed.  There is a memorial to these firefighters near the Shrine.

It is a peaceful experience to climb and meditate on the various Stations of the Cross.  There is a fair amount of climbing, so it may not be for everyone.  The Shrine is open 24 hours a day….no admission is required but donations are gratefully accepted.  We believe that Mass is held at the last station on Sundays.
