All change for beatification

IT LOOKS as if there is a plan B venue for the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman by Pope Benedict XVI.

According to Catholic Herald reports, a spokesman for the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales said that they had asked Birmingham City Council for the use of Cofton Park for Newman’s beatification on September 19.

“He said, that while the details still had to be worked out with the City of Birmingham, they hoped that at least 80,000 people would be able to attend. It is near Rednal where Newman’s Oratorians had a house and where the Fathers of the Oratory were later buried. Cardinal Newman’s grave is there.”
