Want to know more about Cardinal Newman?

Come along to St Joseph's Church, New Malden, on Sunday October 17th, at 6.30pm (ie after the evening Mass) to hear an illustrated talk by Newman scholar Dr Andrew Nash. Come and discover about the life and work of Newman: his childhood, his days at Oxford, the dramatic events of 1845, the foundation of the Oratory in Birmingham...

Everyone is welcome. This is a follow-up to the Papal Visit and Newman's Beatification. Come and join in the celebrations! There will be coffee and marmalade cake (among John Henry Newman's correspondence is a letter thanking some kind ladies for a gift of jars of marmalade for his small community - so we felt that this would be a suitable way to celebrate his beatification!). Donations invited for Maryvale.

St Joseph's church is easily reached by rail (New Malden station is 20 minutes from London Waterloo) and by road (follow the A3 and look for the New Malden exit). Bus 131 from Wimbledon stops outside St Joseph's church on Kingston Road.

Do you have a recipe for marmalade cake you can recommend, for a cook in the US?

I would love to be able to make marmalade cake for our local Catholic college students' group, named for Cardinal Newman.
