Welcome from The Dean
Dear Visitor to the Saint Columb’s Cathedral website.
Dominating the skyline on all approaches to the City of Londonderry is Saint Columb’s Cathedral, which has stood on its prominent site inside the famous Walls of Derry since 1633. Dedicated to the name of Saint Columba (Columb) who established a Christian settlement here in the sixth century, the Cathedral’s primary purpose is the worship of Almighty God. In addition to the Sunday Services there is an act of worship each day (Monday to Friday) and the Cathedral is open daily to welcome visitors from far and near.
This website brings to you some information about the history of the Cathedral and the various aspects of her life. I trust you will take time to explore this website, to discover some of the treasures of Saint Columb’s or to find out more about the Cathedral’s life and witness.
If I can help you or answer any questions you might have you are welcome to contact me by telephone or email or If you would ever like to visit the Cathedral in person you will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
May the Lord be with you.
Very Rev'd William W Morton
