St. Catherine of Siena begins building project

Two matching spires will dominate the exterior of the proposed St. Catherine of Siena Church in Wichita. Construction on the parish’s third, and final, building phase began at the end of February. The neo-Romanesque 1,200-seat church is scheduled to be complete by the fall of 2020. The $17 million project, which includes a gymnasium, was approved by the parish and the bishop after a successful appeal. The architect is SPT Architecture with Simpson Construction Services as the construction manager. (Rendering courtesy SPT Architecture, Wichita)
