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.

St Columb's Cathedral within the walled city of Londonderry.  The Cathedral is the mother church of the Church of Ireland
