During today’s midday Mass at our cathedral, Bishop John installed three new members of the Cathedral Chapter. Our most heartfelt congratulations go out to our Cathedral Dean, Rev Canon Michael Jones, as well as his fellow new Rev Canons Michael Job and Paul Daly. The new canons were joined in celebration by the whole Cathedral Chapter, their families and friends.
The Salford Cathedral Chapter was erected on 24th June 1852, and is made up of eleven priests, who act as a consultative body for the Bishop and assist him in the governance of the Diocese. In addition, their specific role in the Cathedral is to pray, through the Divine Liturgy of the Church, for the Bishop, priests and people of the diocese.
A recording of the Mass is available to watch on our homepage: salfordcathedral.co.uk/
We thank those canons who have recently stepped down from the chapter, and we pray that God gives our new canons the strength to fulfil their important mission in the Diocese of Salford.
