Newman’s Summer (July)

At the Birmingham Oratory under Saint John Henry Newman there was the tradition of having the month of August as a more relaxed period for the Priests of the community. This corresponded with the English school holidays. In Scotland our schools finish a month earlier, at the end of June.

Rest is important, and it gives us a chance to build up resources for the coming year.
Please note:

  1. The 11 am and the 4.30pm Masses will have Organ only.
  2. The 11am will be without ceremony.
  3. There will be no Vespers at 5.30pm.
  4. Benediction with a short period of Adoration will take place
    immediately after the 4.30 Mass.
  5. The Brothers of the Little Oratory will not meet during the
    month of July
