Saint Bede closed in 2007 and, with St. Beatrice, St. Ives, and St. Michael parishes in Southfield, formed Church of the Transfiguration. The building was vacant for many years until mixed used development of the site was announced in 2013. Demolition of the building was expected in February and March 2014.
