HISTORY
Chapel of Memories (Saint Catherine's Catholic Church) built in 1917 was the first building to be built as a church in Temecula. Father John J. Burri was assigned to the community. In 1916 he announced plans for the construction of a catholic church. Soon after, Joe Winkels lead the community effort and started to organize fundraising events and a big fiesta was thrown by Mahlon Vail. The event was a huge success and raised enough money to build the church and buy Father Burri a new car. Mass was held there until 1980's when a new and larger church was built on C Street and Santiago Road.

Located in the heart of historical Old Town Temecula Sam Hicks Monument Park, this quaint chapel has been meticulously restored and renovated to represent its early 1920's origin.  

The stained glass used throughout the facility is a combination of original glass circa 1880's and new matching glass that was obtained from the original glass factory still in operation today. All of the new pews are accurate replicas, using one of the original pews as a model for construction.

The Chapel is set in a beautiful tree-lined park with a large rose garden on the south side and a private patio on the north side for gatherings and receptions.
