Cathedral of the Pines: A Natural Sanctuary in Rindge, New Hampshire

Visit this Moving and Spiritual New England Place

By

Cathedral of the Pines is one of New England's most moving and spiritual places. Situated on a secluded hilltop amidst spindly, fragrant pines with glorious Grand Monadnock Mountain as its backdrop, this nondenominational sanctuary is a place to reflect, to give thanks for nature's beauty, to honor those who have served America and to worship in whatever way suits you.

Open free to the public daily from May through October, Cathedral of the Pines was created to honor a World War II pilot, who never returned to the bucolic farm in southern New Hampshire where this open air chapel now welcomes visitors of all faiths and beliefs. As you will see in these pictures, Cathedral of the Pines is now a national memorial to patriotic service, particularly women's wartime sacrifices.

A visit to this open air cathedral will stimulate your senses and stir your soul. Whether you attend a service or simply stroll the grounds, you'll leave with a sense of gratitude for nature's wonders.
