Young people and families are at the centre of our diocesan planning. Working with and through our wonderful Catholic schools, we will listen to them and actively encourage and support them to use their talents in the life of the Church and thus build even stronger relationships between our schools and parishes.

Launch of 'Gathered'

A new Diocesan Parish Youth Leaders Network - Gathered - has been launched online.

It is aimed at all volunteers engaged in youth ministry, or who are looking to get started.

The Kenelm Youth Trust (KYT), in partnership with the Archdiocese, is launching Gathered to respond to the needs of young people and parish youth leaders.

Using the Vision in school

Staff and students at Blessed William Howard Catholic High School, Stafford, celebrated its patron’s Feast Day (Thursday 21 October) with a day of educational and fun activities themed around ‘Vocation’, giving everyone in the school community an opportunity to reflect on their calling from God.

The day was shaped around the Archdiocese of Birmingham's Diocesan Vision, Unfolding God's Plan through the four themes of Evangelisation, Liturgy and Worship, Formation and Social Outreach.
