Belfast Charitable Society - The Belfast Charitable Society was founded in 1752 to help tackle poverty and disadvantage in Belfast. They opened the Belfast Poor House, now Clifton House, in 1774, and established Belfast’s first hospital. Street lighting, paving, planning permissions and bringing water into the city all fell into the remit of the charity.

Today the Charitable Society operate Clifton House as a social enterprise providing talks, tours and event hire in Belfast’s oldest working building.

The Minute Book (pictured) records the proceedings of the first meeting at the George Tavern on August 28th 1752.

St. Patrick’s Church, Donegall Street The first St. Patrick’s Church was begun in Donegall Street at the height of the Napoleonic Wars in 1812. Completed in 1815, it was replaced by the present building in 1877. A new, larger building was required to serve the expanding Catholic population who settled in Belfast during the Industrial Revolution.

This beautifully bound Roman Missal contains the words used by the priest when celebrating the Mass. The ceremony of the Mass was standardised following the Council of Trent in the mid-16th century and remained unchanged until 1965. This Missal was in continuous use in St. Patrick’s from the opening of the new church in 1877 until 1965.
