Who is Saint Nicholas Owen?
St Nicholas Owen was born into a Protestant country at the time of Henry VIII. He became a carpenter and served the Jesuit priests in England for two decades by constructing hiding places for them in mansions throughout the country. He played a vital part in preserving our Catholic faith, and has strong links with our local centre of pilgrimage at Harvington.
As our Multi-Academy Company has a principal aim of securing Catholic education for Catholic children within the local area, it is particularly fitting that the name should reflect that of a man so inextricably linked with both preserving our Catholic faith and our immediate locality.
