This church is small, but nice, the courtyard was quite a surprise. I love the "sculpture" they made from - obviously - and old tree (see photos). The little town of Cerillos has some really lovely buildings that are being restored. If you're doing the turquoise trail, it's worth a few extra minutes to drive into Cerillos and view some...

Small but pretty little church in the charming village of Cerrillos. Definitely worth a stop in. Holiday music performances are great.

I visit the area often and wandered in here about 4 years ago. The place has been cleaned up and work has been done under the watchful eye of Fr. Jon over the past 3 years. Fr. Jon will be retiring soon and hopefully has inspired his congregation to continue the good work. The prayer garden is lovely. The landscape... More

I didn't get to go inside, as many have mentioned, but it is a nice little church and worth walking around. A nice place to take pictures in this quaint little village.

Was in Cerrillos anyway, so drove in town to take a few pics of church. Was closed, so took some outside, and walked back to dry garden. Pretty, and sacred area with Christ statue holding a child. Along path are cut-in areas of Saints ? or other figures. If just coming to take a picture of this church, keep driving.

Not open to the public unless you attend mass. A drive by is all you need to do! Courtyard area has some statuary and a stations of the cross area.

We stopped in Cerrillos on our way to Santa Fe. We were interested in the town because of the making of the movie Young Guns and being described as a dusty western town. While here we briefly visited the church but didn't go inside, it was locked. There wasn't anyone insight to ask. So it was a quick visit.

Maybe the garden would be nice later in the year. Four very poorly carved statues of Mary, some blah tiles of events in her life. The real attraction is the shabby chic town. Lots of picture potential.

The church was locked but we were able to walk though their very unique courtyard. Knocked on a door and father was very gracious in opening the church for us and letting us visit.

We stopped at St. Joseph Church during our recent visit to the quirky town of Cerrillos. The church is right on main street; you can't miss it. We did not go inside the church itself, but took pictures of the outside. There's a shrine connected to the church. It's inside a courtyard; the door was unlocked when we stopped so... More
