Black Santa

& Donations

The 'Black Santa' tradition at Belfast Cathedral was started in 1976 by Dean Sammy Crooks. The local press described Dean Crooks as Belfast's Black Santa.

Cathedral Donations

The Cathedral also accepts donations large and small. We make sure they are put to good use...

As you can imagine, maintaining a large and beautiful building like Belfast Cathedral is a costly business. Every day we are delighted to welcome visitors for tours of St Anne’s, but we also seek to raise funds to help with the ongoing expenses. Donations made here will help us stay open and further the work to which we are called by Christ in a city that needs this Cathedral to be active and involved in its life.

From everyone at Belfast Cathedral

Thank You
