Dear Friends,

Please find attached the Official Announcement from the Oratory Fathers (the Congregation that Blessed John Henry Newman belonged to) concerning the forthcoming Canonisation (declaring him a Saint) of Blessed John Henry Newman, it will take place on Sunday 13 October 2019 in St Peter's Square, Pope Francis will lead the Mass.

I'm sure in the forthcoming days and weeks plans will be announced much preparation will take place, both Nationally and here within the Archdiocese of Birmingham, the home of Blessed John Henry Newman.
