Cardinal Newman's Beatification will take place in Birmingham on 19th September (bring a Welsh Flag). Go and read his complete works and Father Kerr's short work and you will know all you need to know..........or you could watch Cardinal Newman at 2000 on EWTN each Monday at 6.00am or Fridays at 5.00pm, 30 minutes long. Father you may have read all of his works etc. but have most of you parishioners? Go on, put it on the newsletter. As I doubt any or many Priests read this blog do pass it on.
Or, if you can, come and hear Fr Nicholas Schofield, the youngest Parish Priest ever appionted in Westminster, talk about Cardinal Newman's life. The talk starts at 7pm on Tuesday 14th September in the social centre, below the Church of St James Spanish Place, 22 George St, London, W1U 3QY. Father Schofield is PP of Uxbridge, diocesan Archivist and a prolific historical writer, but more immportantly he supports the Good Counsel Network!
