Welcome to St. Eero Catholic Community.

The "renovation" of the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Detroit has been completed.

Here's a photo sampler. Can you tell what's new?


It was designed by a disciple of Finnish architect Eero Saarinen named Gunnar Birkets. Mr. Birkets is not Catholic, and his stated goal was to bring the Gothic cathedral into the modern world. Precisely the wrong approach, as I see it.

I'm going to see it in person before I say more.
