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.

John Smeaton blogs : 'As I said in June: 'Everything covered up will be uncovered at the Birmingham Oratory'. It could not be more important for a proper understanding of this scandal that, according to the spokesman for the Birmingham Oratory, these men are 'are entirely guiltless of any wrong-doing whatsoever' . Please alert your friends to the plight of the Birmingham Three'.
We ask our readers worldwide for prayers and Masses, please, as the crisis deepens and the situation at the Birmingham Oratory appears to be going into freefall
