The daily life of the Cathedral is the responsibility of the Dean, three Residentiary Canons, and the four lay members who constitute the Chapter of Lichfield Cathedral. They are supported by the Cathedral Council whose twenty members are either elected, or nominated by the Bishop of Lichfield.
They are also joined in their work by the College of Canons (a number of senior priests from the Diocese of Lichfield), the full and part time lay staff and the volunteers. For a fuller description of the clergy hierarchy, please see this article.
Lichfield Cathedral has a lively and growing congregation and the Chapter lead a pastoral and teaching ministry which builds up the fellowship and equips members to play their part in the mission of the church and the service of God in the world.
