Celebrating our Heritage

Fr McCaughan offering Mass here at St Catherine's not long after his ordination to the Priesthood.

At Latin Mass Belfast, Fr Damian McCaughan, writes about how the Extraordinary Form of the Mass has helped him and many other younger people to appreciate our Catholic heritage. A thoughtful post about our Catholic heritage.
As a child growing up in St Malachy's Parish, Coleraine, I remember being intrigued by the church building.  I loved the chance to light a candle, to look up close at the different statues of the saints, or to say a prayer at Our Lady's altar.  One thing confused me though - why was Our Lady's altar attached to the wall?  How could a priest ever have said Mass there?
