Petersfield Post notice of event. 2013.
The choir comprised singers from both congregations and sang the Responsorial music as well as hymns chosen because they were familiar to both sides.
The Parish Priest of Petersfield Parish, Canon Gerard Hetherington said the Mass. All Saints’ Vicar, Canon Terry Louden, accompanied him and welcomed the Catholics in the congregation. 2013
Despite dreadful wind and rain that day, the event was very well attended - an estimated 150 people, both Petersfield parishioners and the congregation of All Saints. Its Vicar, Canon Terry Louden, welcomed his catholic guests in the name of Christian Unity, emphasising the similarities rather than the differences between the two branches of Christianity, a sentiment echoed by Canon Hetherington.
