On Sunday, October 13, 2019, our patron is declared a saint in Rome by Pope Francis. Saint John Henry Newman's feast day is October 9, but being our patronal day, it is transferred to a Sunday each year.
Join us at 11AM on Sunday, October 13 at Blessed John Henry Newman Catholic Church in Irvine for a special Mass acknowledging the rise to heaven of Cardinal Newman. Fr. Glenn Baaten, will be celebrating and preaching and bestowing the blessing with the Relic of Newman; the choir is preparing special choral music; following the Mass, all are invited to a full lunch reception to celebrate.
