Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in West End sometimes seems like a forgotten relic. Walking through the interior of this cathedral-style church is the closest you can get to feeling like you’re in a European cathedral. Climbing the stairs to the balcony feels like the setting of a Dan Brown adventure novel.
This is also the site of a weekly Latin Mass, so you can hear the chanting and liturgy in a way that makes you feel like you are in Rome a century ago.
Blessed Sacrament is located at 1460 Pearson Avenue SW—in the West End of Birmingham, near Elmwood cemetery. The Traditional Latin Mass is offered there every Sunday at 10:45 a.m.
