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

On Wednesday, March 21st The Summit (Mass and Adoration) will be held at 7:00pm in the Newman Centre Oratory, not in the Basilica Catacombs. We are calling this the Summit Unplugged because music by the Divine Praises worship band will be primarily acoustic and vocalists will not have microphones. This event will replace the usual Wednesday Mass and Adoration at 4:30pm.
Fr. Mark will be available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Sacristy between 6:00pm and 7:00pm, as well as during Adoration.
Following Adoration there will be a social starting at 8:30pm.
As we prepare to celebrate Easter, come and join us for the last Summit of this academic year!
Mass and Adoration for Young Adults featuring contemporary music by The Divine Praises on Wednesday, November 15th at 7:00pm in the Catacombs of the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate, 28 Norfolk Street, Guelph. Click here to watch a video from the last Summit.
