  St. Fidelis Church, Cathedral of the Plains
by basstbn
 
 

St Fidelis Church is quite visible from Interstate Highway 70. Most travelers barely notice this magnificent structure or merely wonder what it is (or was as they speed past.) If you consider yourself a true traveler, get off of the highway and devote a few minutes to visit this beautiful church (not actually a cathedral) and learn how the Volga German immigrants sacrificed hours of labor to help build St. Fidelis. It's even more beautiful inside than out.

Address: 900 Cathedral Street
Directions: There is only one exit on the interstate at Victoria. You may follow the signs if you wish, but the steeples stand so far above the Kansas prairie you can see where it is for miles around.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
