About Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman

Originally, an Anglican priest, he converted to Catholicism and was elevated to the Cardinalate in 1879. He founded the first English-speaking Oratory of Saint Philip Neri in Birmingham, England, and his writing continues to inspire scholars throughout the world. Additionally, Catholic ministry centers located at non-Catholic universities throughout the world known as Newman Centers are named in honor of Saint Cardinal John Henry Newman.
