Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament
Across K Street Mall from the Regional Transit (RT) Cathedral Square train stop, is an edifice sculpted in the classic architectural mode. Patisian cathedrals such as Notre Dame inspired its theme, as evidenced by its ascending niched pillars directing worshipers' eyes upward to twin, asymmetrical bell towers. At the front entrance, a mountainous flight of stairs ascends to tall wooden doors. The interior has various saintly sculptures carved in wood, and well-worn wooden pews. A large circular, stained-glass window, crafted in Italy, illuminates the central altar.
Sacramento's cathedral has been
restored with care and authenticity
to show the glory of the decorative
arts of the late 19th century superimposed on a lovely Cathedral
modeled on a famous Paris church.
Definitely worth a visit, particularly at Mass time on Sunday
to share with a very diverse congregation.
