February 4, 2011

First Minister of Northern Ireland, Peter Robinson stated that February 4 of 2011 marked a ‘new era’ in Belfast’s history after Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall paid the first ever Royal visit to a Catholic Church in Northern Ireland. The Prince of Wales went to see the £3.5 million restoration project at St. Malachy’s Church and met with churchgoers and representatives from parish groups, including the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul and St. Malachy’s Primary School. Just fifteen years ago, this visit would have been near impossible.
