I was born in Belfast, left in 1965. I was baptised, made First Communion & was confirmed in St. Peters. I lived in Durham St. I love to join in the mass on the web, the church looks wonderful. I visited the Cathedral last year on a visit to Belfast and it was terrific to stand again in this beautiful church
Bless. I've visited the cathedral several times on my visits to Belfast and have been impressed every time.
I was baptised here in March 1952, plus First Communion and Confirmation.
My father, William Joseph O'NEILL was born, and baptized at the cathedral, on the 25th of April, 1899. Can please you put me in touch with someone in the parish who can help me do some research on his sister Sarah who was born in 1893. I'm so close but her married name eludes me and it is very frustrating.
Thorough and well-maintained website. Thank you. Happy Holy Week.
Greetings from Polish. Hail Mary,full of grace...
Visiting Ireland for the fist time. I hope to see the Cathedral tomorrow (Friday, August 8) before I leave for Dublin. It looks beautiful!
I'll be in Belfast next week and hope to get to the Cathedral at least to see it, if not attend or concelebrate Mass. This looks like a beautiful and historic, but most importantly a faithful place of worship and prayer in the best of our Catholic Tradition.
Thank God for the technical team who look after the webcam; making people feel very near when they are far away. Charlene in France
went to st Vincent school and was confirmed in St Peters Church. In the US since 1964. Visited St Peters Church ln 2012 with my sister Kathleen hope to go again this year! God Bless
Thank-you so much for the wonderful and warm Christmas Mass that I watched via the internet on ChurchServices.tv at your church on 12/24/13. It is so neat that we can view and kind of be a part of the places of our ancestors! I am in Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A.
From Coventry, lived in Whitehall Row, Divis Flats with my granny and Aunt Marie for a good while, went to St. Congalls, St Marys and St Louises and then came back to Coventry, but attended St Peters, where I was baptised and confirmed, every Saturday for confession and then Mass on Sunday. I remember my friends the Guthries, Gaults, McNallys- with the Fitz? family spread between them, the O'Neills- Roisin in particular, they lived in the prefabs across from the church. Oh well wish everyone well, haven't been in Belfast for about 10 years and typically that was for the funeral of my uncle Pat Faul, brought the kids over, but didn't get chance to bring them to the church, hope to next time xx
Could this be the St Peter's where my grandmother Margaret Jane Moore was baptized at in 1876? She came to America in about 1904-6, eventually South Dakota,and we don't know of any family of hers. She had memorabilia referencing Ballymena.
Peace be with You! I have never been to St. Peter Belfast but had a friend of mine who use to attend mass there and I get to know about the church from website. My friend has died of cancer leaving behind a son named Frank Banner aged 9 years old. I would like to know if anybody I can get in touch in the Church that I and church members from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Sabah, Borneo, East Malaysia can raise a fund and send them to your Church to help the kid mentioned to lighten their burden and food expenses and to him to be able to go to school again.What more as Christmas is approaching, it's so sadden to see a kid suffering without shelter and food. We are sincere to help no matter we are very far from your country. Advise us how we can send the fund. Sincerely, servant of God
My dad, William Joseph O'Neill, was baptized at St. Peter's on the 25th of April, 1899 (the day he was born) by the Rev. Wm. McCourt. He was delivered by Margaret Farrell, a feme sage, who also supported him at Baptism.
