Newman College, 13th November 2016
13th November was Rememberance Sunday in England, but it was also the day on which the Holy Doors in many Cathedrals, Jubilee Churches and Places of Pilgrimage were officially closed ( a week prior to the official closing of the Holy Door by our Holy Father Pope Francis in Rome).
So also at Littlemore, on this particular Sunday morning, some parishioners of Blessed Dominic Barberi church and some Friends gathered in the Newman College chapel
On Monday, 29th February, the former home of Blessed John Henry Newman in Littlemore, Oxford known simply as The College, was the setting for a lecture on and reading of Newman’s historic Second Spring Sermon. In the same room in which Newman kept his library while living there, Newman enthusiasts gathered from Oxfordshire, Birmingham and as far away as Sussex. Sister Bianca Feuerstein FSO, member of The Spiritual Family The Work who are the custodians of The College, welcomed the group who filled the library. Mr Esme Howard, a Trustee of the charity that operates The College, served as Master of Ceremonies.
