Tiny chapel.

St. Jude Tiny Church

Beautiful area. Beautiful tiny chapel, right behind Trust general store and restaurant at intersection of 209 and 63. A newspaper article in the chapel tells the story of how it came to be. We ride past here all the time on motorcycles.

Tiny Church - St. Jude's Chapel of Hope

This small chapel is called "St. Jude's Chapel of Hope," in the small community of Trust, which is near the community of Spring Creek in Madison county. It sits on the corner where hwy 63 and hwy 209 connects. You can go inside to rest, take a look around and reflect as the sign in front encourage you to do.

St. Jude Tiny Church

Beautiful Tiny Church built by a recovered cancer patient in honor of St Jude the patron of lost causes. Definitely big enough to enter - seats about 8.

Joe's actual size sister puts this "tiny" church in proper perspective.

St. Jude's Chapel - A Tiny Chapel

Stumbled upon a gem! There is a tiny chapel in Trust, NC built by Mrs. Barutio, who credits St. Jude with her recovery from cancer. It is always open to visitors and, from the picture I saw, it's very, very tiny - but big enough to enter (not like a dollhouse).
