Our patron St. John Henry Newman was a scholar, convert, theologian, priest, and cardinal—but through it all, he was an educator. Cor ad cor loquitur (“Heart speaks to heart”) was his motto, and he believed strongly that “personal influence” is the best means of teaching the truths of our Catholic faith. He founded the famous Oratory School of Birmingham, England, and his Idea of a University and University Sketches helped define the Catholic university. The Newman Society led the official American pilgrimages to England for Newman’s beatification in 2010 and also attended his canonization in Rome in 2019.
