Blessed JH Newman in Bosham

The Life and work of Blessed John Henry Newman was the subject of a special talk
by the writer Fr Jerome Bertram, of the Oxford Oratory, on October 21st 2010, at Our Lady of the Assumption at Bosham.

Fr Jerome began by recalling Newman's youthful sailing days around Bosham - with the title "Newman off-shore at Bosham - The Round the Island trip in 1815, " when Newman was 14 - a year before he became an undergraduate at Oxford.

St Richard's had parishioners at Cofton Park for the Beatification ceremony.

The full version of the talk is on pdf format, compiled from Fr Jerome's notes; you need a program such as Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open it. You may well have this program already. If not, you can download it free from Adobe's own website.

The pdf runs to eleven pages and takes about one minute to download. You might want to download this feature before you read it. You can also enlarge the type size. If you're using Internet Explorer on Windows, you can download it by clicking the title with the mouse button on the right, and picking Save Target As off the menu that appears.
