There was the news in the Oxford Oratory parish bulletin yesterday about the proposal to set up a new Oratory in Bournemouth.
This initiative, backed by the Bishop of Portsmouth, has attracted quite a bit of attention. The two founding Fathers are from the Southwark archdiocese, and are to be supported and joined by Fr Dominic Jacob from the Oxford Oratory.
There are articles about this very positive development by Fr Blake on his blog at A New Oratory in Bournemouth and in the Catholic Herald online at England's sixth Oratory to be set up in Bournemouth
The parish website can be seen at Sacred Heart Church Bournemouth and there is an online account of the building and its history at Sacred Heart Church, Bournemouth
The Church of the Sacred Heart in Bournemouth
This is a project to be thankful for and to pray for in the coming months and years.
