New Birmingham archbishop welcomes exhibition

By on 09/12/2009 in News

The new Roman Catholic archbishop of Birmingham has hailed Birmingham City Council for hosting an exhibition dedicated to the Christmas story.

Speaking as he was officially welcomed to the city in a special Mass, Bishop Bernard Longley used his sermon to highlight Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery's Nativity Trail.

Running from December 3 to January 6, the Nativity Trail shows a series of paintings telling the story of Christmas.

The archbishop said: “I felt so encouraged to see this prominent institution, with the support of the city council, enabling the story at the heart of Christian faith to be experienced and appreciated through the beauty and the message of great works of art in public ownership.”

The Nativity Trail is one of a number of Birmingham City Council Christmas Events.
