Welcome to the Archdiocese of Birmingham

We hope that you will find our website useful and enjoy searching through the various aspects of life in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Here you will be able to check our list of clergy and parishes, to find out Mass times and other services. You can access the pages of Archbishop Bernard Longley and his auxiliary bishops, read some of their homilies and learn more about them. You will find a list of contacts of the various offices of the Archdiocese and the many charitable organizations at work across the West Midlands and beyond.

Whatever your reason for visiting us we pray that God will bless your search and grant you many blessings.
