BLESSED SACRAMENT CHURCH PHOTO TOUR

 The Blessed Sacrament Church, located in Elk, CA was built in 1896.  Although the church has undergone some structural modifications, every effort is being made to maintain its historical integrity.  As you will note, the inside of the church remains very traditional in appearance.  Enjoy a brief pictorial tour of the church, old and new.

The Blessed Sacrament Church as it appeared about 100 years ago. Blessed Sacrament at the turn of the 20th century The Blessed Sacrament today. Note the tall tower at the back of the church no longer stands. Current Blessed Sacrament Church
The bell was removed from the tower (in left facing front of church) during the 1970's. It originally came from St. Mary, Star of the Sea which stood at Cuffey's Cove, about 1 mile north of Elk.
