Pictured following the Installation of the new Canons at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, were the Ven Robin Bantry White (preacher), the Very Revd William Morton, the Revd Canon Patrick Harvey and the Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral, the Very Revd Victor Stacey.
We congratulate Dean William Morton following his installation as a Canon of St Patrick's Cathedral.
Two new Canons were installed in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, during Choral Evensong yesterday (January 19). The Very Revd William Morton, Dean of Derry, was installed to the Prebendal stall of Howth, to represent Derry and Raphoe. Representing Cashel and Ossory, the Revd Canon Patrick Harvey, Rector of Abbeyleix, was installed to the Prebendal stall of Stagonil.
The preacher was the Ven Robin Bantry White, who was delivering his last sermon in the cathedral before relinquishing the Prebendary of Castleknock. The Archdeacon of Cork, Cloyn and Ross is retiring in March.
He paid tribute to the Dean of Derry saying he "came with the experience of St Columb’s Cathedral, Derry, and had played a role in reconciliation and culture in the city".
Following the service members of the Chapter proceeded to the Chapter House where the newly installed Canons were given a Voice in the Chapter.
