Following the retirement of the Revd Canon Janet Catterall earlier in the year the Venerable Craig McCauley (Archdeacon of Kilmore) was installed by Dean William Morton as the Prebendary of Mulhuddart (representing the United Diocese of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh) in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin during evensong on Sunday 4th December 2016.
The new Canon was joined at the service by his wife Vida along with his parents and wider family. Craig commented afterwards that the day was meaningful on many levels “My maternal grandparents sat in the pews 60 years ago when my Uncle Harry Deegan was in the boys choir. Also the first place I ever took a service on my own was in Mulhuddart Church when I was a parishioner in Castleknock Parish. As I represent the United Dioceses I look forward under God to embracing life in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in the years ahead and serving the Dean and Chapter in whatever way I can.”
