As part of its 80th anniversary celebrations, St Katharine’s Parish Church, Belfast, is hosting a visit from the Police Male Voice Choir on Friday November 23 at 7.30pm.
This choir was formed in 1973 as the Royal Ulster Constabulary Male Voice Choir. With the formation of the Police Service of Northern Ireland in 2001 the choir changed its name to The Police Male Voice Choir (Incorporating the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Male Voice Choir).
The Choir has performed in Canada, Germany, Sweden, the Czech Republic and throughout the United Kingdom.
There will be supper in the Church Hall (the original Church) afterwards.
The main anniversary celebration takes place on Sunday November 25 at 11am in the parish church which was dedicated on St Katharine’s Day 1956. The preacher will be the Rt Rev Harold Miller, Bishop of Down and Dromore, and a son of the parish.
The rector of St Katharine’s, the Rev Canon William Taggart, said: “We invite old and new members alike to join us as we mark 80 years of witness in the area.”
Further information on both events is available from Canon Taggart on 07933 588355.
