“Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home –
Lead Thou me on!”
As one of our newest declared saints of the Church, Saint John Henry Newman shines a brilliant light on faithful Catholic education and is an example of steadfast fidelity to our one, holy, catholic, and apostolic faith.
The Cardinal Newman Society invites you to join us in praying a novena to our patron saint beginning on Sunday, October 1, 2023, and culminating with his feast day on Monday, October 9, 2023.
For Catholics today, Newman is a holy example of conversion, fidelity, and Christian renewal amid an increasingly secular world. He is the patron of The Cardinal Newman Society, which promotes and defends faithful Catholic education, and the inspiration for The Newman Guide, which recognizes Catholic schools, colleges, and graduate programs for their truth and fidelity.
