On 11 November 2021, on the memorial of St Martin of Tours, Canons Paul Fitzpatrick and Jonathan Veasey were installed into the Chapter of Canons at St Chad’s Cathedral. Mass was celebrated by the Very Reverend Canon Mervyn Tower in the presence of Archbishop Bernard Longley and the Auxiliary Bishops of Birmingham.
Canons Paul and Jonathan are now part of the Chapter of Canons, who form the governing body of the Cathedral, caring for it and for its liturgical life.
They are also the College of Consultors who advise the Archbishop about the life and mission of the Archdiocese.
Canons Paul and Jonathan join Canon Richard Walker and Canon Gerard Murray who were both installed on 5 October.
