Metropolitan Chapter of Utrecht Installs a New Canon

Tonight  Father Dr Leen Engelbert Wijker will be installed  as a Canon in the Metropolitan Chapter of Utrecht during Vespers at the Cathedral Church of St. Gertrude. Dr. Wijker was elected for the position at the last Chapter meeting in Hilversum.

The Metropolitan Chapter is the first and oldest advisory body of the Archbishop of Utrecht and also responsible for the election of the Utrecht bishops. The course consists of at least five members and Dr Wijker the sixth member.

In 1122, with the Concordat of Worms, the Emperor's right of investiture was annulled, and the cathedral chapter of canons received the right to the election of the bishop. This was again confirmed in the Forth Lateran Council in 1215.

We congratulate Dr. Wijker on his installation!
