Oriel College celebrated the recent canonisation of John Henry Newman both at home and abroad.

On Sunday 13 October 2019, the Provost and a number of Orielenses joined thousands of pilgrims in Rome to attend the Canonisation Mass of John Henry Newman. The Provost Neil Mendoza attended as part of the official UK delegation with the Prince of Wales.

On 17 October, the celebrations continued as members of the Oriel chapel choir sang in an evensong at University Church, with the Archbishop of Birmingham as preacher.
