St. Francis of Assisi, Lapeer

Douglas County, Kansas on the corner of N. 450th and E. 300th Road – I chanced upon this little Catholic church last Saturday, and loved the way it looked in the snow. It sits almost alone on a country intersection. Evidently, someone was out clearing the walkways in the wind and cold.

    Dave, as usual, another great image. The last five have been great. And I love this template you are using–great viewing structure.

    i love the feeling of isolation here. well done.

  3. Dolores

    My sister went to this church occasionally with the priest. She always wanted to take me there to see the beautiful stained glass windows. However, she died on February 4 of this year and I will never get to make that trip with her. I have been trying to find out just where this church is so could you help me with the directions. Thanks.

    Like Dolores, I've wondered exactly where this church was located, since the pastor of the Catholic parishes in Osage City & Scranton also has this little parish in his fold. I will definitely get there sometime this summer. (They have Mass at 4 PM on Saturdays, I believe)
