It is well worth taking about 30 minutes off of your I70 trip to go south off the highway and visit this church. It takes about 5 minutes down the road and then you are there able to view a beautiful church and take photos.

We recently visited this Cathedral for a wedding. It is a towering structure in the small Kansas town and contains beautiful stained glass. It is worth a quick visit when you are in the Hays, Kansas area.

You can see the double steeples for miles. It's an amazing Catholic Church from afar and close up. St. Fidelis is a gorgeous building and deserves as much recognition as it can get. The history is as beautiful as the interior. There is a plaque...More

We saw the spires from miles away, as we drove on a cross country trip. We were ready for a bit of a break, so we wandered over to the cathedral, not really knowing what to expect. What a treat. The cathedral is really magnificent....More
