We were very proud to be associated with the Papal Mass (19th September 2010) to Beatify our patron John Henry Newman. This was a day for celebration of Newman’s contribution to the Church and also for us to Higher Education. Staff and students were involved in the liturgy, as stewards and as pilgrims.
