I will be adding more items soon!
Some severe weather in western Kansas. I miss this.

I also stopped by on my way to Wichita to see one of the 8 wonders of Kansas–St. Fidelis Church, the Cathedral of the plains in Victoria KS.  I had not heard about it but saw signs along the interstate and saw two huge towers protruding into the sky so I am very happy about my decision to stop by and take a look. Here is some information about it:

The "Cathedral of the Plains" is Saint Fidelis Catholic Church in Victoria, Kansas. It has seating for 1,100 people, which, at the time of it's dedication, made it the largest church west of the Mississippi River. The church is 220 feet long, 110 feet wide at the transepts and 75 feet at the nave. Its ceiling is 44 feet above the ground and the towers are 141 feet tall.
Three previous churches served the community of predominately German immigrants, but the present church was begun in 1908 and completed in 1911. The exterior is constructed of large native limestone blocks weighing from 50 to 100 pounds each.
The Romanesque design church contains German windows & works of art, Austrian hand carved stations of the cross, and Italian marble altar. The church is open to the public (free) from dawn to dusk. Stop by early on a Friday evening and you may be treated to the sounds of the Saint Fidelis organist rehearsing. Groups or individuals may arrange a guided tour by contacting the Parish Office at 785-735-2777.
Sunday Masses are celebrated in St. Fidelis Church at 5PM on Saturday and 10:30AM on Sundays Daily Mass is celebrated at 7PM on Wednesday and 6:45AM on the other weekdays.
St. Fidelis Catholic Church is not the seat for a bishop, so it is not a Cathedral. It received its nickname from William Jennings Bryan when he visited St. Fidelis in 1912.
This was a pleasant surprise as I turned the corner at the conference. So beautiful. 

It was nice to meet so many new people! Rita! You and your sister are wonderful people. Midwesterners seem to have that relaxed kindness about them.

It was a good weekend. The Midwest Family Catholic Conference in Wichita, Kansas. I enjoyed my weekend of meeting new friends, catching up with ones I haven't seen in a while, listening to speakers like Patrick Coffin and Tim Staples. Seeing so many Catholic families was heartwarming.
