Omagh Sacred Heart Church / The Chapel

On 28th May, 1899 the new church was dedicated jointly by the Bishop Dr. O’Doherty and Cardinal Logue. It is one of the four churches at the head of the town and has the tallest spires. The building with the second highest spire is St Columbas Church of Ireland - a view of the interior H4472 : Sacred Heart RC Church, Omagh In the Catholic Canon Law a chapel, technically called an "oratory" is a space dedicated to the celebration of services, particularly Mass, which is not a parish church. This may be a private chapel, for the use of one person or a select group (a bishop's private chapel, or the chapel of a convent, for instance); a semi-public oratory, which is partially available to the general public (a seminary chapel that welcomes visitors to services, for instance); or a public oratory (for instance, a hospital or university chapel). The word chapel is in particularly common usage in England, and even more so in Wales, for many non-Anglican Protestant church buildings; and in Scotland and Ireland many ordinary Catholic churches are known to locals as "the chapel".
