A Vigil of Prayer

  • Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore Piazza di S. Maria Maggiore Roma, Lazio Italy (map)

On the eve of the canonisation, presided by Archbishop Bernard Longley, we invoke the prayers of the new Saint-to-be for all those gathered in the church, and their intentions. Amongst those praying together at the Vigil will be representatives from the Church of England, from international institutions associated with Newman, from those who have been praying for his canonisation including the Familia Spiritualis Opus (Das Werk) and the Confederation of the Oratory of St Philip Neri. We will also welcome Mrs Melissa Villalobos, the subject of the second Newman Miracle and her family.
Music provided by the London Oratory Schola.
