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 were so taken by this cathedral. First, you can see it as you're driving down I-70. A mighty monolith to Christianity. It was built between 1908 and 1911. It must have a large and generous congregation as it was in impeccable condition inside and...More

Stopped in to light a candle, was awestruck by the sheer magnitude of the cathedral. The town is charming. The marble pillars and statues are so beautifully detailed.
