Cardinal Newman becoming a saint puts Oxford church on pilgrims' trail

From Oxford-

WHEN Cardinal John Henry Newman becomes a saint it will put a Littlemore church on the pilgrims’ trail. 

The Fathers of the Birmingham Oratory have announced that Pope Francis will canonise Blessed John Henry Newman in St Peter’s Square, Rome, on Sunday, October 13. 

This will make Cardinal Newman the first English person who has lived since the 17th century officially recognised as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. 

The news is being welcomed in Littlemore as Cardinal Newman built St Mary and St Nicholas Church, in Sandford Road, Littlemore, while still an Anglican in 1835.
