Blessed John Henry Newman Shrine

Nearly completed is the Shrine of Blessed John Henry Newman, which has been installed in the baptistry of Our Lady of the Atonement Church in San Antonio, Texas. Many of those who attended the first "Becoming One" Gathering saw the partially-finished painting and contributed towards the cost of the shrine in thanksgiving for Anglicanorum coetibus. The painting was done by Leo Garza, a local San Antonio artist, and the shrine itself was built by Shayne Bernier, both members of Our Lady of the Atonement.

The shrine should be completely finished within a matter of weeks, when it will then be blessed. Prayers will be offered daily for those who are entering full communion through an Ordinariate.
