St Henry

St Henry, whose feast day is today (13 July), was born in Bavaria in 973 and succeeded to the duchy at the age of 22. He became Holy Roman Emperor in 1014. He was noted for his support for the reform of the Church and for his encouragement of its missionary activity. He set up many bishoprics, and he and his wife Cunegunda founded many monasteries. He died in 1024 and was canonized by Pope Eugenius III in 1146. This stained glass image of the saint is by Capronnier and is in St Stephen's Catholic Church, Skipton.
