Christian Unity Week – Pope Francis celebrates Vespers

pope-vespers-25-1-17Today, at the close of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Pope Francis will preside at Vespers in the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls in Rome.
The Sistine Chapel Choir will be joined by the choir of Westminster Abbey.
You can follow the live feed at 4.25pm (or watch it later), and there is also a lovely interview on Vatican Radio with the Dean of Westminster, Dr John Hall, and Mark Spyropoulos, the only full time English singer with the Sistine Chapel choir (who was at school at Worth).
The collaboration of the two choirs grows out of recent years of deepening Anglican-Catholic relations, in particular following Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to London in September 2010.
