Crosses everywhere

St. Fidelis Cemetery
Victoria, KS

This picture barely shows the vast number of crosses in this catholic cemetery. When I stepped out of the car it almost took my breath away. There is much craftmanship and beauty in this small rural cemetery. There are some I will feature individually in future blogs.

The newer burials are in the back portion of the cemetery so from the roadside you see all of these ornate crosses and other unique headstones. I had a hard time taking a cemetery walk. I wanted to run to each one so that I had time to see them all.


  1. "I wanted to run to each one so that I had time to see them all." -- I LOVE that feeling! :-)

  2. Those metal crosses are endemic to the central Midwest. They're gorgeous.
