An unfortunate and ironic title considering the building's lack of reflection on Christ's transfiguration from a man into the son of God. It has instead fallen gradually from a late-gothic style beauty into a neighborhood garbage depository, and now finally, fallen to the fated wrecking ball. After 95 years of service, this church had sat vacant since 2000. The structure is comprised of an upper church in the standard western-European layout (though with a relatively shortened transept), which provides seating for about 1,000 people while a basement level church seats approximately 400 people. Also located on the property is a three story rectory, the former convent and a three story school building.
