Monuments

Dedicated in 1877 Mount Saint Marys' Cemetery is the final resting place for many of Kansas City's founders.  St. Francis Regis was the first Catholic Church in Kansas City, located near where the present day Cathedral stands.  Those interned in it's graveyard were moved to MSM after it's dedicated.  The shot above I call Monuments as it incorporates man's tributes to both the quick and the dead. 


I want to thank Father Joseph Totton for telling me about this photo opportunity!!!!!
