Pope Benedict will celebrate a beatification Mass for Cardinal John Henry Newman in Birmingham, England, on September 19.
Revered by both Catholics and Anglicans, Cardinal Newman was a 19th-century theologian and one of modern England's most respected spiritual figures. Named in honor of his honor, Newman Centers are residence and Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic universities throughout the world. They were inspired by Newman's writings encouraging societies for Catholic students attending secular universities. The Catholic Center at NYU was one of the first established American chapters, and the undergraduate Newman Club was indeed named in Cardinal Newman's honor.
