History & Collections
For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the
masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful buildings and a powerful symbol of the splendour of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a
breathtaking events venue.
Four new Prebendaries have been welcomed to St Paul's at a special collation and installation
The Revd Jonathan Osborne, Senior Chaplain at the Metropolitan Police Service; The Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Chaplain to the Speaker of the
House of Commons; The Revd Michael Moorhead of All Souls Harlesden; and The Revd John Hawkins of St John’s Vicarage – were awarded their
honorary titles under the Dome by the Bishop of London alongside family, friends, and high profile guests including the Speaker of the House of
Commons and the Jamaican High Commissioner (Sunday 3 March).
Prebendaries are appointed by the Bishop after consultation with the Dean in recognition of their valuable ministry in the Diocese. They are
given their own stall in the quire, are invited to preach once a year and are given a portion of the psalms to recite each day.
Prebendaries are also encouraged to take a full part in the life of St Paul’s, often becoming part of St Paul’s pastoral team, cementing the
Cathedral’s links with the parishes of the Diocese.
Recognised for his work with the Met Police, the Revd Jonathan Osborne said "I am thrilled to have been installed as a Prebendary and am
looking forward to taking an active role at St Paul's. I also believe this is important recognition of the central role that chaplains play
within the Church.”
The Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, recognised for her service to the Church, community and most recently as Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of
Commons, said: "The reality is I love all that I do and appreciate the great privilege bestowed on me to serve. I accept the Prebendary
stall on behalf of all those who I serve.”
The Revd Michael Moore, installed for his long standing Church and community work in Harlesden, added: "I have served in the Diocese all
my ministry and entirely in Northwest London. I am delighted to be honoured by the church in this way and am especially delighted for All Souls
and for Harlesden.”
