Welcome to Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church.
The present church building of St. Catherine of Siena, Bristol Street Birmingham, dates from 1964. It replaced an earlier building which was begun in 1875 and which was demolished to make way for a road improvement scheme. It has a distinctive round shape which suited the liturgical and architectural ideas of the time.The local area has undergone many changes in recent years. The congregation is now drawn from people who have come from all over the world.
A message of hope following the recent terrorist attacks
...... it is our vocation as Christians not to feed into the mind set of division and fear that terrorism seeks to sow: there is no room for “us” and “them” between sisters and brothers, children of the same God, and we can rest fully in the knowledge that, with our living God by our side, we need not surrender to fear. We know and are reassured that death will not have the final word.
Katharina Smith-Müller Interreligious Adviser to the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.
