The Catholic Church came to the Wichita area early on. This church has the look of old style cathedral, it has been updated in the last few years mostly inside. New pews and lots of painted details of pictures and alters. Take note of the large heavy doors as you enter the front doors, they are huge but swing with ease. Open most all of the time.
Good feeling and nice people ,my opinion people ain't snobby the people are friendly and very nice and loving wonderful place to bring your family and worship God ,and plus we ain't suppose to worry about how the people treat us you supposed to go to church to worship God and serve God and love people and because you love God and thankful and grateful to God and our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for forgiven our sins and cause we love being his children Not to have praise from people
