A memorial to Marilyn Moyer, the Moyer family chose to honor Marilyn by providing a building for thought and meditation that offers solace for those seeking it. The 1400-squarefoot Chapel occupies the most visually prominent location on a 58 acre Catholic sanctuary east of downtown Portland, OR. Perched at a nearly vertical 130-feet high basalt cliff, the building site offers panoramic views to the Columbia Gorge.
The Friends of the Marilyn Moyer Chapel is a group dedicated to the preservation of the Marilyn Moyer Meditation Chapel at The Grotto in Portland, Oregon. With help of friends and family, we keep this international architectural award winning building looking spectacular so that future generations may enjoy it.
