The church, originally a parish church under the supervision of the Benedictine order, was constructed in the English Gothic style by the architectural firm of Comes, Perry and McMullen in Pittsburgh. It was dedicated in May 1928, and is constructed of sandstone and Indiana limestone. The parish was designated Blessed Sacrament Cathedral with the establishment of the Diocese of Greensburg on March 10, 1951, at which time the Benedictines relinquished pastoral responsibility.
