Ladies' Ordinariate Pilgrimage to Littlemore
Tuesday 25th February 2014

The Ordinariate women's group, LOGS, went on pilgrimage last week to Littlemore near Oxford, - the place where Blessed John Henry Newman lived and worked, building a church and a school for the local people. He also created for himself and a group of friends a place of quiet retreat, converting a former stable and granary into a library, living accommodation, and a chapel. It was here, on the night of 9 October 1845 that the famous Anglican preache and leading figure of the Oxford Movement was received into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church by Blessed Dominic Barberi, an Italian missionary priest.

The LOGS pilgrims enjoyed lunch in the library, which now houses a collection of Newman memorabilia and books, and were given a tour of Littlemore, visiting the church, and Newman's private chapel - where they prayed, using Newman's own rosary.

Littlemore is now in the care of the Sisters of The Work, a religious order.

"It was an unforgettable day - we had not expected to be so struck by the atmosphere, the sense of prayer that surrounds the place" said Kathie Kempton, secretary of LOGS "And the young sisters we met were so joyful in their faith. Sister Christine , who spent the afternoon with us and showed us round, was so interesting and Newman's story really came alive for us."
