Dame Mary, who will soon complete her term of office as Lord Lieutenant of Belfast, was special guest at the service, and a number of Deputy Lord Lieutenants were also present.

The Dean of Belfast, the Very Rev John Mann, said: “In recognition of the support that Dame Mary has given both Cathedrals and their choirs, Father Hugh Kennedy, administrator of St Peter’s, invited her to this special Service of Vespers for St Peter’s Day to say thank you.

“Dame Mary has been in St Anne’s Cathedral many times during the years she was Lord Lieutenant, including the occasion of the very important launch of our Choir School Project.”

Dean Mann added that the two Cathedrals of Belfast continue to work very closely together.
