The goal of this project is to record a listing and brief description of the churches of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita in Kansas, United States. This diocese was formed in 1887.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Michelle Enke.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Listing of churches in diocese
  • Brief description of churches in diocese such as founding date, cemetery name, school
  • Listing of records of the diocese

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!
