Newman Tribute Night
Many people know our patron Saint John Henry Newman as someone who was an academic and a university professor. What you may not know is that he was very much involved in the arts in general. Come to our Newman Tribute Night at the Basilica Shrine of Our Lady Immaculate on Friday, January 17th at 7:00pm to hear pieces of music based on works of Newman, including an opera, as well as readings of his essays, poems, meditations, and his novels. There will be Newman trivia beforehand and a social to follow. Join us as we honour our patron and celebrate his canonization. Fr. Mark Morley, Chaplain
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.
