A special ceremony was observed during Fort Lowell Day on February 14, 2015, to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of this small sanctuary.

La Capillita was honored with a gift of Papal Blessing bestowed by the Holy Father
from Rome as part of the occasion.

Originally built in 1915, La Capillita housed an altar from which services were conducted
to the community gathered under the shade of mesquite trees in front of the tiny structure. The priest was a Carmelite Father who rode in on horseback from The Holy Parish of Tucson.

The original building fell into ruin but, following an archaeological study in 1997, it was lovingly reconstructed with historical accuracy by local residents and students, drawn together for the project. La Capillita continues to this day to serve the neighborhood as a sanctuary.
