If you missed....

...the really excellent presentation on "Who was John Henry Newman?" at St Joseph's, New Malden, recently, you have another chance to hear this talk. It's at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre,Edge Hill, Wimbledon London SW19, on Nov 10th at 7.30pm. Entry £3.00, proceeds to Maryvale. There will be coffee and marmalade cake: in one letter from the newly-founded Birmingham Oratory, Fr Newman wrote to thank some kind ladies for the gift of several jars of marmalade, so we are commemorating this in our refreshments! All are welcome.
(Incidentally that parish website has some nice memories of the Papal visit from parishioners - the Pope was living in Wimbledon for those four days, and everyone loved it!)

Dear Joanna,
Please could you send me a list of your books? Am an Anglo-catholic at present, but VERY excited about soon joining the Ordinariate (once it's formed), and looking for a way in to intelligent, up-to-date Catholic literature.
Many thanks

My copy of Fr. Ian Ker's biography of Cardinal Newman arrived in the mail today. I'm looking forward to a good read.
