The Blessed Sacrament Cathedral is an original architectural design in its simplicity, functionality and dignity. Designed in 1955 by Alberto Beale, an architect from Havana, Cuba, and completed and blessed in 1967 under the organizing skills and determined efforts of Fr. Kiely, SJ, assisted by the fortuitious interventions of Divine Providence in forms of benefactors from the USA and Canada, the Cathedral commands a beautiful view of Montego Bay City and Harbor, from the top of Mt. Alvernia (formerly Tower Hill)
It underwent some renovations in the 1980s to ensure the proper implementation of the liturgical reforms of Vatican II, but it has still retained its original simplicity of architectural form and some of its original brassworks, like the stations of the cross, the backdrops to the altar of the Blessed Sacrament and one of Our Lady.
Attached to the north side of the main church is a Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, a gift from a couple in the parish of Our Lady of Mercy, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA, who wish to remain anonymous. The chapel was blessed in 2000 and there the Eucharist is exposed for an all-day adoration three times a week.
The Cathedral's original doors, which have sustained the onslaught of the tropical elements now need replacement.
