Victoria — Repairs and renovations are under way at the historic Cathedral of the Plains in north-central Kansas.
Repair work began last week on a crack near the center of the ceiling over the sanctuary because of concerns that plaster might fall on visitors and worshippers.
The 100-year-old stone St. Fidelis Catholic Church in Victoria is on the National Register of Historic Places and in 2008 was named one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas. Thousands of visitors stop at the church every year.
The Hays Daily News reports that other repair projects planned at the church this year include the heating system, handrails and renovation of confessional rooms.
