Welcome to this House of God. Talk to God before Mass. Listen to God during Mass. Talk to others after Mass.

Hello, and a very warm welcome to the web site of the ‘Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church ‘, Great Barr, Birmingham UK; known as ‘Holy Name in Great Barr’.

We are happy to extend a warm personal welcome to both parishioners and visitors through our web site. We hope that as you browse these digital pages it allows you to gain a snapshot of our life as a Parish Community; to see some of the many ministries and activities that make up our dynamic parish.

The message of the ‘Gospel of Christ’ and the liturgy, equips us not only to promote the values of the Gospel, but to live and share them with our brothers and sisters. We have many groups of people within our parish, who dedicate their time, energy and resources, to work together, to proclaim the mission of the Catholic Church in our local community.

We hope that you find this web site beneficial. ‘Where two or three are gathered in Jesus’ name, there he is present amongst them’ (Mt.18:20) May the presence of the Lord bless and guide our thoughts, prayers and actions.

“The Knights of St Columba is a group of Catholic Men.  Our aim is to support the Church and Clergy in a variety of ways.  We are looking for new members.  If you are interested please contact Joe McNamara on 07801273086.” Thank you.

Many would remember that there was a SVP Group in our parish very actively    serving and helping needy people in so many ways. It has not been active for some years now so it has formally been put into abeyance. However, I would like to re-start SVP Group in our parish. Do you have some spare time or a skill you can share? Would you like to bring the SVP mission to your parish or school? If so we would  love to hear from you, so please come to our open meeting on Wednesday 27th February at 7:30pm at the  Parish Office. Fr. Vincent SCJ
