Celebrating Cardinal Newman as an ecumenical saint

On the day following his canonisation there will be an ecumenical Evensong at Wells Cathedral on Monday 14th October at 5:15pm. Music in the service will accompany some of Newman’s own words, and there will be a new anthem also using one of Cardinal Newman’s texts. Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton will be present and will give the blessing.

After the service there will be a short appreciation of John Henry Newman offered by the Dean of Wells and Canon Graham Dodds; with a drinks party to follow.
