Welcome to our Website

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the Parish of St Thomas & St Edmund of Canterbury or, as it is more affectionately known, The Abbey. 

We are based in the bustling suberb of Erdington in the Northern part of the wonderful City of Birmingham. 

It is thrilling to share our faith with the Erdington Abbey Parish Community. 

Here, so many cultures and nationalities are represented, reflecting the coming together of God's people in His Kingdom. This has not only enriched this great parish but has brought joy and fun. 

In addition to the army of men and women who undertake whatever is necessary for the good of the parish, the Abbey is a true Community of prayer and to this end you are welcome to join us at Mass, Holy Hour, Novena and Adoration. 

I look forward to seeing you at The Erdington Abbey soon.

Yours in Christ,

Fr Kieran Brady C.Ss.R - Parish Priest

Need help to come to mass?

The SVP would like to help collect parishioners who are unable to get to Mass on their own on Sunday by arranging to pick them up from their home using the facility of the minibus to bring them to the 10.30 Mass each Sunday. If you think you would benefit from this service please contact Ronnie Sweeney (SVP member) on 07958939449.
