Celebration in Honor of St John Henry Newman in Trumbull, CT, This Weekend

In thanksgiving for the canonization of St John Henry Newman, the parish of St Catherine of Siena in Trumbull, Connecicut will hold a weekend-long celebration on Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20. The homily at each Mass will consider the life, thought, and relevance of the Catholic Church’s newest Saint; the music sung at Mass will feature hymns written by him: Firmly I Believe and Truly, Lead, Kindly Light, and Praise to the Holiest, which was also sung at the Church’s dedication in March. An authenticated first-class relic of St. John Henry Newman will be available for veneration. Masses will be held on Saturday, at 4:00 pm and 7:15 pm, and on Sunday at 7:30 am, 9:00 am, 10:30 am, and 12:00 pm. For information, please contact the parish office at (203) 377-3133; the church is located at 220 Shelton Road.

When St Catherine of Siena Church was consecrated by Bishop Caggiano in March, a relic of St John Henry Newman was deposited and sealed inside the new altar. At the same time, frames were added around the fourteen Stations of the Cross which feature his Meditations on the Stations of the Cross, so that visitors to the church can pray with the new Saint in contemplating our Lord’s journey to Calvary.
