Reliquary Bust of S John Henry Newman

Reliquary Bust of S John Henry Newman

Splendid news from the Ordinariate’s Central London Church of Our Lady of the Assumption & S Gregory, Warwick St, in the form of a brand new reliquary bust of our illustrious patron, S John Henry Newman. This rather fetching bust, which contains a relic of the great saint’s hair, was sculpted and given by Mr. Neil Weir MD MA FRCS, otolaryngologist, neuro-otologist, bioethicist and medical historian. It is mounted on the epistle side of the Lady Chapel.
