Want to help...

...honour John Henry Newman as his Beatification approaches?

Old Oscott House, where he went to live on becoming a Catholic was renamed by him,
Maryvale and is now a well-known Catholic educational Instuitute. It's a wonderful old house, full of intriguing nooks and pleasingly slanted staircases...but at the moment it doesn't have a proper memorial to Newman. Now there are plans to open up the internal window that joined his room to the Chapel, and to give access to this special private place where he used to kneel and pray, looking towards the Blessed Sacrament.

Maryvale needs money to do this, and hasn't got much. Why not help? You will be playing a small part in English history, and giving practical help to a place that helps to train catechists and teachers of the Faith for today and tomorrow...
