It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to this new-look website for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham.
Speaking on the importance of Communications, Pope Francis reminded us recently that the digital world is a vital place of meeting and encounter which he describes as a gift from God. As a gift, our website offers a unique window into the life of the local church as well as an opportunity to share our Catholic faith more widely.
As this Easter Season unfolds and we continue to celebrate the joy of new life through Our Lord’s resurrection, I assure you of my prayers and kindest wishes.
Yours sincerely in the Lord,Bernard Longley, Archbishop of BirminghamPastoral Letter - Feast of Corpus Christi 2 -3 June 2018.pdf
