The Archdiocese of Birmingham is privileged to have been asked to host the National Mass for the Guild of Saint Stephen, on behalf of the Archconfraternity in Westminster.

Archbishop Bernard Longley will be principal celebrant and homilist at the Mass, on Saturday 25 September 2021 at 12 noon, at the parish of Ss. Mary & John, Wolverhampton. After Mass, there will be refreshments in parish centre.

This Mass, to which servers from across the country are invited, is in addition to our annual diocesan Mass, which takes place each spring at the Cathedral.

We are grateful to Fr Paweł Bielak, the Pauline Fathers and the parish community for hosting us.


Although we hope all COVID restrictions will have been lifted, for the comfort and safety of all attending, we will be operating a booking system for FREE tickets for this event. We intend to have bookings opening at the beginning of July, when we hope to have clear picture of COVID safety requirements.

The National Mass is being planned by the Diocesan Vocations Office, that administers the Guild in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Keep an eye on the dedicated page for this event on their website.
