Hello and Welcome to the Archdiocese of Birmingham website.

Your virtual visit is most welcome.

This website is our window to the world and an opportunity for us to share our Catholic faith in a digital setting. Now more than ever online communication is vital to keep in touch, to engage and to share. It also enables us to develop and deepen the unity which the Lord has given to his Church.  

I hope that you find what you are looking for here.  I also assure you of my prayers and kindest wishes.

Yours sincerely in the Lord,

Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham
