Yet More News about Ushaw

Today, the trustees of Ushaw College are meeting and presumably the main item on the agenda is the closure of the college. One would hope that the trustees will be giving consideration to the proposal that has been put to them whereby an independent Catholic trust would take over the estate and run it as a conference centre and retreat centre, thereby preserving some of its historic and cultural associations.

The trustees are:-

Archbishop Patrick Kelly (Chairman),
Bishop Seamus Cunningham,
Bishop Terence Brain,
Bishop Terence Drainey,
Bishop John Rawsthorne and
Bishop Mark Davies.

Another thing that they might be considering is the on-line petition, now signed by over 1100 people, calling on the trustees to forestall the closure until all the options have been considered and there has been the opportunity for public debate.

You can sign the petition by going to
