(PAWHUSKA, OK) – A special tour is set for one of northeast Oklahoma’s most historic churches.  Price Tower Arts Center, in collaboration with the Bartlesville Area History Museum, has organized a private tour of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Pawhuska.  The tour is set for Saturday, November 20th.

“We are so pleased to be able to invite everyone to learn more about this church, often called ‘The Cathedral of the Osage,’” said Cynthia Naylor, education coordinator for Price Tower Arts Center.

Father Chris Daigle will lead the tour and share information about the design and history of the church and congregation. The tour is free and open to the public.  Those taking part should meet at the church.  The discussion will begin at 10:30 a.m. and continue until 12:30 p.m., concluding with a reception and light refreshments.

“The stained glass windows in the church are unique.  They were commissioned from Munich, Germany after World War I and many include scenes with American Indians.  There are still 140 families active in the church.  Many of them are members of the Osage tribe,” added Naylor.

The event is being held in conjunction with Price Tower Arts Center’s exhibition, William Schickel: Spirit Made Manifest and BAHM’s A Spiritual Journey Through History, detailing the history of Washington County Churches.

For more information about the tour, including directions to the church, call 918.336.4949.
