Cardinal Newman to be Beatified

Our Holy Father Pope Benedict today signed a decree recognising the miraculous cure attributed to the intercession of John Henry, Cardinal Newman, the founder of the Oratory in England. This is an answer to the unceasing prayers and work of many people over many years and is a cause of tremendous joy, not only to the Oratory but to the Church in England. Please follow the links below to the press releases from the Oxford and Birmingham Oratories.

Bishop Philip Boyce, OCD, of the Diocese of Raphoe, Ireland, who is coming to preach while the relics of St Therese are with us, is staying on to lead the celebrations of the anniversary of Newman's reception into the Church on 9th October 1845. Bishop Boyce is both a Carmelite and an expert on the work of Cardinal Newman.
