634 - 672. Born in Northumbria he trained under St Aidan at Lindisfarne.
He also spent several years in Ireland working with St Egbert until he
was called back to replace his brother Cedd as Abbot of Lastingham,
near Whitby, Yorkshire.
He was made Bishop of York a role which was later taken from him by
Theodore, the newly arrived Archbishop of Canterbury. St Chad accepted
this with humility which, together with his simplicity of life, so
impressed Theodore that he later later appointed him as Bishop of
Chad moved the seat of Mercia to Lichfield where he founded a monastery
and retreat house. His dwelling was near a well where he baptised
converts to Christianity. St Chad's Well, pictured in the artwork, is
still a place of pilgrimage.
St Chad is called 'the Apostle of the Midlands' for his work and
evangelisation in this era.
The influence of the St Chad, who was revered as a saint in his own
lifetime, is still evident in the many churches and schools named after
him, particularly in the Diocese of Shrewsbury (which includes the old
Diocese of Lichfield), and Archdiocese of Birmingham, which houses his
remains in St. Chad's Catherdral.
St Chad's Gospel, a 7th Century manuscript, is preserved in Lichfield Cathedral library.
Original artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
