Blessed John Henry Newman Canonised In Rome 13th October 2019

Sunday 13th October is a special day for Catholics all over the world but especially for Birmingham Archdiocese.  Blessed John Henry Newman will be canonised by Pope Francis and will become a saint.  We are celebrating our local saint from the Oratory in Birmingham  in college this week with Mrs O’Connor leading Collective Worship for every group devoted to his life and journey to canonisation.  In form time students will be reflecting on his  prayer of mission, ‘God has created me to do some definite service.’  In RE lessons we will be saying prayers from the Newman Novena. Staff in our Monday morning prayer in the Chapel will be given prayer cards celebrating his canonisation.  Please join with us in college by praying at home  using the Newman Novena booklet especially as Pope Francis has declared October an Extraordinary Missionary Month.  #NewmanCanonisation  #StJohnHenryNewman
