St. Thomas à Becket (1118-1170), English Chancellor and Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry II, was born in London, of Norman parents. He was educated at universities in London and Paris.

In 1162, King Henry II appointed Thomas to be the Archbishop of Canterbury. Soon Thomas began taking his responsibilities seriously. Within a year Thomas à Becket and King Henry II were in open conflict.

St_Thomas_of_Canterbury Invoking the assistance of Pope Alexander III, Becket fled to a monastery in France in November 1164. When King Henry II infringed on the rights of Canterbury by insisting the Archbishop of York crown his son as prince in 1170, Pope Alexander forced a reconciliation between Thomas à Becket and the king, and Becket returned to England. The Archbishop prevailed upon the Pope to suspend bishops who were supporters of the King.

Thomas’s murder near the altar of Canterbury Cathedral on December 29, 1170 was perpetrated by four overzealous knights. Thomas à Becket was canonized by Pope Alexander on February 21, 1173.

In 1220, his bones were placed in a special shrine, which for three centuries continued to be an object of one of the great pilgrimages in Christendom. (In Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the pilgrims are on their way to Canterbury.) At the time of the Reformation (1538), Henry VIII plundered the magnificent shrine and scattered Thomas’s bones because his memory represented a symbol of opposition to the crown. However, the name of the saint remains to this day in the Roman Catholic and Anglican calendar.
A stone from Canterbury Cathedral is embedded in the first pillar of our parish hall.
