“MY SECOND HOME”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The great doctor of the church St Augustine of Hippo must be well and truly proud with his ministry in Harborne.
An amazingly tranquil start to the day is the morning prayers which start at 8am and finishes at 8.15am. Not to be missed. Also Mass afterwards. Great start to the day.
As for the parish community - I have yet to find a more welcoming community. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help out. It really makes you feel like you are home when you are here. The Parish is blessed to have some amazing new friars. Father Brian gave an outstanding homily the other week about the use of money. It was awesome.. You could hear a pin drop!
Also the new priest from Mexico (sounds like the title of a film) is really laid back. And the other new young priest is always smiling.
Hooray as well to all the other priests, Father Ben, Lawrence, John and Keith, and absent priest such as Father Jacob, plus David and the readers.
If you're a cradle Catholic on the verge of letting go or you want to become a Catholic, I urge you to come to St. Mary's tomorrow morning. You WILL encounter His presence. You WILL believe in something greater than you.
I give 5 stars to this church.
