Long Tower goes Latin

The Latin Mass will take place in Derry once a month, beginning in November. Bishop Hegarty has chosen St Columba’s Church, Long Tower, as the best location for the Mass in the ancient rite, since it has retained the original altars, the altar rails and all of its ornate features.

The Mass will take place on the first Sunday of the month, every month, at 2pm. It will be celebrated by various priests of the diocese and is open to everyone who would like to pray in the form that the Church used for many centuries.
