IT IS a tradition which goes back three decades.

Anglicans and Catholics in Havant will again celebrate mass together next Saturday – a ritual which began in 1982 to mark the visit of Pope John Paul II to the UK and always takes place on the last Saturday in May.

It will take place at St Thomas a Becket Church, in Warblington, at 6.30pm in honour of the Blessed Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury, whose refusal to support Henry VIII’s break with Rome saw her taken from Warblington Castle and imprisoned in the Tower of London until her death in 1540.
