Celebrating 150 Years of St Colmcille’s Holywood

The first Holy Mass in the site of our current parish was celebrated on 14 June 1874.  Exactly 150 years later we acknowledged this anniversary with a special Mass on 14 June 2024 led by our parish priest, the Very Reverend Stephen McBrearty PP.  We were joined in that celebration by the Very Reverend Aidan Kerr (a former parish priest at St Colmcille’s) the Very Reverend David Moore (who was ordained here) and Reverend Fr John O’Laverty – a relative of our very first parish priest back in 1874.

The recording of that Mass is available to view below.
