Shove Memorial Chapel

Colorado Springs



The top of Shove's bell tower gives one of the best views of campus and is one of Colorado College's best-kept secrets. Even simply sitting in the chapel gives you a unique perspective of the natural beauty that surrounds this gorgeous space. It's a quiet and graceful space where anybody can enjoy a break from the buzzing around campus and to celebrate a happily-ever-after. Shove Chapel is Colorado College’s non denominational place of worship as well as a community gathering space for the most special of wedding day celebrations. With beautiful traditional architecture, cathedral ceilings, stained glass and a grand pipe organ, you and your guests will be dazzled. With stunning landscaping of lush green grasses and tall trees out front, you will have a perfect backdrop for photos that you’ll remember forever. The rich history that encompasses the Shove Memorial Chapel is one of a kind and a truly special space to say I do.
