As Parish Priest, I welcome you to the website of St George and St Teresa, Dorridge.
The website aims to provide information about the life, news and activities of the Parish and to direct those who wish to the websites of our Schools. Mass times and opportunities for Confession are given, and how to go about arranging for the other Sacraments is indicated.

Web Camera. Watch Mass via our web camera
St George and St Teresa has recently installed a Web Camera in order to take the Sunday Mass into the homes of those who are unable to come to Church, particularly the sick and elderly. Click the image above or this link.
Sadly, until further notice, all public Masses and services are suspended at St George and St Teresa and the church is now closed.
Masses will continue to be celebrated without a congregation. Click to join with the liturgy.

THE SVP is a Catholic charitable society whose aim is 'faith in action'. Our parish SVP group do daily deliveries of food & supplies to Food Banks, homeless shelters, as well as to drop in centres for asylum seekers & refugees. Due to the current situation, the main Food Bank that they work with are desperately short of provisions and are struggling to meet demand for the most deprived areas of Birmingham. They need urgent donations of food, cleaning products, toiletries and baby products on a large scale. Donations can be dropped off at the school or local addresses for the SVP team to collect every Thursday. Please see the newsletters below for an update on how things are going.
Archbishop Bernard Longley has sent this message to priests who live-stream Masses:
Because of the reduced contact between themselves and their clergy and fellow parishioners many of your people will inevitably feel rather isolated. Being able to join in the prayers of the Mass through the live-streaming will become increasingly important within your parish and for those who access this service beyond its oundaries. Your own ministry will consequently be at the forefront of what the Church is able to offer at this very challenging moment.
May I therefore encourage you, in a special way this weekend, to welcome and embrace the participation of all those who will be united with you in spirit and in prayer through the live-steaming? Please pass on to them my prayers and kindest wishes at this time and assure them that I shall be remembering their intentions as I celebrate Sunday Mass here at Archbishop’s House.
