The tabernacle in a Catholic Church is used for the exclusive reservation of the consecrated Eucharist

At St. Agnes, the tabernacle, was repositioned to the center of the sanctuary as part of the 2016 Cathedral Restoration project. The tabernacle was placed on a marble altar whose motif matches that of the main altar, ambo and baptismal font.
On each of the four sides of the tabernacle is an angel holding wheat or grapes depicted in silver. The shape of the tabernacle echoes the shape of the Cathedral itself. Even the etchings on the roof match the exterior roof of the Cathedral. A hanging lamp above the tabernacle designates this sacred place where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved. 

Also as part of the 2016 restoration effort, an elaborate baldachin was constructed over the tabernacle further enhancing the importance of the most sacred area of the cathedral.
