John Henry Newman is regarded by Catholics as the greatest Englishman of the 19th century. Newman was born in 1801 in London but his association with the city of Birmingham stems from his
formation of the Oratorian Congregation of Birmingham in 1848. In 1879 Pope Leo XIII appointed Newman a Cardinal for his devotion and efforts. He died on August 11, 1890.

On visiting England in 1982, Pope John Paul II referred to Newman as ‘that pilgrim for truth’ who had come to a ‘prayerfulness and a wisdom which still inspires us today.’

Newman’s motto as Cardinal was “Cor ad Cor loquitur” or “Heart speaks to heart.” Newman was beatified on September 19, 2010 in Birmingham, England

The Newman Lecture is open to all without charge, though donations will be gladly accepted. We welcome lay leaders and catechists, clergy and religious. While preregistration is not required, we will be providing a light lunch and would appreciate you contacting the Center with numbers of attendees to help us plan accordingly.
