Cardinal to become saint

Posted on July 29 2019 at 1:12:36

Cardinal John Henry Newman, the 19th-century theologian who founded Birmingham Oratory and is buried in the Lickeys, will be canonised in the Vatican on October 13.

Having been beatified by the Pope at Cofton Park in 2010, he will be the first English person born since the 17th century to be declared a saint by the Catholic Church.
