ICKSP Church in Belfast opens with Vespers

The first service

The new church of the Institute of Christ the King in Belfast opened on Tuesday with Vespers attended by the Bishop of Down and Connor, Rt Rev Noel Treanor.  The following day, Wednesday 11th November, the Institute's Monsignor Gilles Wach offered a Solemn Mass.

The Institute has had to work hard to make the former Presbyterian Church suitable for Catholic use.  A temporary altar (seen in the picture) has been installed.  This altar originated in Spain, and was used as a temporary altar at the Institute's church in Limerick before a permanent one was installed there.  The picture also shows temporary communion rails.

Although the the church is well supplied with benches, they do not have kneelers, and so will require some modification.

There is a BBC video clip of the first Mass on the Latin Mass Belfast facebook page.  It shows that the church was well filled.
