Welcome to St. William's, a suburban Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Hallam, situated in the south-west of Sheffield in South Yorkshire. In addition to providing information, we hope these pages give an impression of our church and parish: what makes us tick, what makes us unique, how we live our Christian lives.

we ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

St William of York and St Francis of Assisi parishes are gently beginning to come closer by finding out about each other and forming links. At St William's Parish Vision Meetings, an open meeting to which all parishioners are invited, held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, we are praying about this and reflecting on possible directions.

Let Us Adore Him

"Adoremus will be a unique opportunity for the Church to gather 
and reflect on the centrality of the Eucharist and particularly to explore
 the place of Eucharistic Adoration.

Over three days from 7 - 9 September 2018, we will hold a 
Eucharistic Congress to celebrate the place of the Eucharist in our lives. 
It will take place in Liverpool and draw together 10,000 people from 
England and Wales."
Cardinal Vincent Nichols
