Today October 9th is the feast day of Saint John Henry Newman. We wish you all a blessed Feast of Saint John Henry Newman! Below you will find one of Newman’s beautiful reflections, A Daily Prayer. Saint John Henry Newman was canonised in Rome on 13th October 2019. The video link below is a recording of the canonisation Mass. We hope it brings back some happy memories especially for several members of our parish who made the pilgrimage to Rome this time two years ago for the canonisation.
A Daily Prayer
May God support us all the day long,
till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.
Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest
and peace at the last.
