The Canonisation of St John Henry Newman will take place in St. Peter’s Square, Rome on Sunday the 13th of October at 10am (Rome Time) 9am BST.
It is a cause of great joy to English speaking Catholics throughout the world. The rich theology, spirituality and pastoral practice of the new Saint remains an inspiration down to our own day. It is not without reason that Newman has been called “Father of the Second Vatican Council”. The Oratories have produced a great website with information on St John Henry Newman including material from his writings.
