Visit to learn more about soon to be Saint John Henry Newman

As members of Newman House, we were chosen by our Heads of Year to travel to Oscott College to find out more about our House patron.   

We didn’t know what to expect, but when we arrived at St Mary’s seminary, Oscott we were taken into the beautiful chapel.  We walked around the chapel where Newman made his Confirmation and preached from the pulpit.  Next we went to the room full of artefacts and vestments that Newman used to wear. 

We had our lunch there and Deacon Paschal joined us and chatted about his vocation.  He was fun. 

We then travelled to The Oratory, Edgbaston where we went to Mass.  The church was amazing and full of paintings.  Br David gave us a tour and tested our knowledge of Newman and the reformation.  We asked questions.  A nice surprise was when he gave us a large medal of Newman to take home with us.  We can’t wait to share our new knowledge with students at our school when we mark the canonisation of John Henry Newman on 11th October.   

Thank you for taking us on this memorable trip!
