Fr Keiron Walker – Mass for Installation to Leeds Cathedral Chapter on Wednesday 12th October 2022, celebrant by The Right Reverend Marcus Stock Bishop of Leeds.

The Chapter of Canons is attached to Leeds Cathedral.  According to the Statutes of the Chapter, there are to be twelve Canons and each is appointed by the Diocesan Bishop.  Once appointed and installed, Canons remain in office until they are 75 years of age when they are requested to offer their resignation from the Chapter to the Diocesan Bishop.  When a Canon has resigned from the Chapter he is known as a Canon emeritus.  The head of the Chapter is known as the Provost.

According to the general law of the Church, the role of the Chapter is to celebrate the more solemn liturgical functions in the Cathedral.  Moreover, in the Diocese of Leeds, the Chapter functions as the College of Consultors and advises the Bishop on specific issues laid down in the law.  By custom, should the Diocese become vacant the Chapter, having been convened by the Provost, chooses a priest to administer the Diocese until a new Bishop is appointed by the Pope.
