109. ST. PATRICK, Bordesley (Frank St.), originated as St. Patrick's School chapel, licensed as a mission of St. Alban's, Bordesley, in 1873; a separate chapel was opened in 1889 and a permanent church was opened under the bishop's licence in 1896. The church, which was consecrated in 1889, (fn. 73) is a building of red brick designed by J. L. Pearson in the Early English style and comprises chancel, nave, aisles, and vestry. A parish was assigned out of St. Alban's, Bordesley, St. Paul's, Balsall Heath, and St. Thomas's in the Moors, Balsall Heath, in 1900. (fn. 74) The living, a perpetual curacy from 1900 and a vicarage since 1908, is in the gift of the Vicar of St. Alban's. (fn. 75)
