St Joseph's Catholic Church, Oakham

Venerable John Lyon

16th July, the feast of our Lady of Mount Carmel, is the anniversary of Venerable John Lyon.

The Venerable John Lyon was the only one of the forty Martyrs of England and Wales to be born in the County of Rutland, the smallest county in England.

An ordinary yeoman farmer and father of seven children, John was found guilty of treason; he was hanged, drawn and quartered on 16th July 1599, in Oakham the county town, for being a recusant or dissenter to the enforced establishment of The Church Of England under Queen Elizabeth I. His only crime was that he would not say that Elizabeth was head of the church in England.

Venerable John Lyon prayer for us.
