Newman Night at the Basilica

On Sunday, November 24th, after Vespers, Cardinal Collins gave a talk on the life of Saint John Henry Newman and then presented us with a relic that is now mounted on the wall of our Oratory. It’s a signature taken from a book that Newman signed. Thank you to Fr. Duffy.

Saint John Henry Newman

Our patron, John Henry Newman, was canonized on Sunday, October 13th by Pope Francis. He has been declared a saint! For Bishop Robert Barron’s reflections on the canonization Mass, click here. Saint John Henry Newman, pray for us!
