Newman Observances? -
  • What special masses or celebratory goings on are being planned by Forum Folk for Newman's canonisation?
    At Walsingham the 11.15am High mass on the 13th will be followed immediately by a solemn Te Deum, with solemn choral evensong at 4.00pm.
    Also, the following week we will be getting Newman relics, for which we will sing another solemn Te Deum right after a pontifical high mass.
    We are having a series of lectures about his sermons, poetry, and other writings throughout the month of September.
    In the lectures The Idea of a University got special attention (as did the famous and ground-breaking Tract 90.

    'Knowledge is one thing, Virtue another.'

    In England under the older rubrics, the Sunday is replaced by the Feast of Edward the Confessor double of the II class. In Westminster St Edward is double of the I class (I cl.) so will take precedence over the Sunday even in 1962.
    Of course for those following the 1962, you could have an external solemnity!

  • We are planning several things that will happen later in the week. We'll be having a special guest - Bp. Athanasius Schneider - to coincide with our celebratory events through the week. He'll be giving a dinner talk on the evening of the 16th, and on the evening of the 17th we will have a Pontifical Votive Mass of St. Newman to complete several days of other events.
