3 Oratorians were ordered to "spend time in prayer" at 3 separate monasteries hundreds of miles apart and indefinitely. Of the 3, Fr. Dermot Fenlon (described by the Oratory's own spokesman as "entireley guiltless of any wrong doing whatsoever") remains silenced and in exile. This blog is an archive of publications about the scandal at Newman's Oratory. It aims to bring out the facts, of the great injustice suffered by the 3, particularly the cruel treatment of Fr. Dermot Fenlon.
Meanwhile, it would seem that while the Oratory are busy sending Fr Lewis away for very ordinary training at the other end of the world (a tradition begun by Newman?) the Archdiocese of Birmingham think he is already ordained!
