Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Interior, Detroit

The staff graciously turned on the lights for me so I could photograph the interior of the cathedral, which was completed in 1930, several years after the church was consecrated.

There were some renovations in the early millennium that are apparent as they look different than in a typical Gothic Revival cathedral.

The stained glass clerestory windows are very beautiful, and you can read more about their history here.

Below is the Holy Name window, which is located in the north transept, just before the choir or apse of the cathedral.

Here is the apse, which was partially altered by the earlier renovations. From what I understand there was a large reredos behind the altar originally.

Looking to our right, the south transept expands into a large chapel.

Here, there is another large stained glass window.

Sculpture and pieces from the former high altar are on display here.

In a side hallway that goes back to the cathedral’s offices are some paintings of unknown origin. Interestingly, this church is built on the site of a former factory, and a portion of its walls is incorporated into the back portion of the building.
