St. Mary's Catholic Church

(785) 336-2294
RR1, Box 59, St Benedict, KS 66538

The church was enrolled as a Kansas Historic Site in 1978 and to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The church is of late Roman style. In contrast to its rather simple exterior, its interior is a superb example of spatial enrichment by decoration and ornamentation. On display are 14 large oil paintings including Zukotynski's Assumption of the Blessed Mother. Much of the symbolic design and Christian symbols are considered works of art by George F. Satory. A Grotto is located north and east of the church. Tours available.
