Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
Fixing his eyes on his disciples Jesus said:
‘How happy are you who are poor: yours is the kingdom of God.
Happy you who are hungry now: you shall be satisfied.
Happy you who weep now: you shall laugh.
Happy are you when people hate you, drive you out, abuse you, denounce your name as criminal, on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice when that day comes and dance for joy, for then your reward will be great in heaven. This was the way their ancestors treated the prophets.
‘But alas for you who are rich: you are having your consolation now.
Alas for you who have your fill now: you shall go hungry.
Alas for you who laugh now: you shall mourn and weep.
‘Alas for you when the world speaks well of you! This was the way their ancestors treated the false prophets.’
The parish school is St Peter's First School, situated close to the Church. It was established in around 1860 in part of the building which is now the Parish Centre. The school is now associated with other local Catholic schools in Redditch as part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Multi-Academy Company (MAC). Click here for a link to the school website. The headteacher is Mrs Catherine Clubley.
We are a Roman Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. The patron of our church is St Peter. The church is situated on the B4091, the main road south out of Bromsgrove town centre (click here for a link to a map). The parish priest is Monsignor Graham Wilkinson
Thinking of becoming a Catholic or of renewing your faith?
Whether you are a non Christian or a non Catholic, if you wish to learn about the Catholic Faith you are most welcome to attend our sessions "Journey in Faith" which started at the beginning of October. Now is the time to give serious thought to this should you wish to find out if the Catholic Faith is for you or if you wish to return to the Faith and deepen your knowledge and understanding.
The Journey in Faith course takes place on each Monday at 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Centre and continues weekly until Easter.
If you wish for further information or have a positive interest in becoming a Catholic please contact Fr Graham or John Lally. For more information see also the page on this website How do I become a Catholic?
