Choirs Sing Together at Unity Service in Belfast Cathedral

Diocesan News

Added on 21/01/2016

The annual joint Cathedral service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in Belfast was held on Tuesday January 19 in St Anne’s Cathedral.

The choirs of St Anne’s and St Peter’s Roman Catholic Cathedral were united for the anthem ‘If you love me, keep my commandments’. St Peter’s choir sang How’s ‘Amor Vincit Omnia’ and St Anne’s choir contributed a beautiful French setting of the Lord’s Prayer.

The preacher was the Most Rev Bernard Longley, RC Archbishop of Birmingham. Others who took part were the Methodist President, the Rev Brian Anderson; former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church; the Rev Ivan Patterson; the Bishop of Down and Connor, Bishop Noel Treanor; the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy; the Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Rev Richard Clarke and Fr Hugh Kennedy, Administrator of St Peter’s Cathedral.

The Order of Service was prepared for worldwide use by the Christians of Latvia, and was based around the verses 1 Peter 2:9–10.
