Cathedral of Blessed Sacrament
Diocese of Sacramento
The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, dedicated in June 1889 and rededicated on November 20, 2005 after a significant two-year restoration serves as the official seat of the Diocese of Sacramento. As one of the largest cathedrals west of the Mississippi, it accomplishes the effective blending of glory and grace. Its architecture and interiors or described as a Victorian interpretation of French Renaissance.
Within this beautiful church are many breathtaking features inspiring faith and sharing history, including the Cathedra (Bishop’s chair), a spectacular dome, a 13-foot crucifix, a tabernacle tower and a 100-year-old sanctuary lamp. The resplendent art, which encircles the dome and adorns the chapels, masterfully conveys Scripture and God’s saving grace.
