Welcome to St. William's, a large 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.

World Day of the Poor.

Pope Francis' Message for World Day of the Poor

On this World Day we are called to love and share with the poorest amongst us, and bear witness to Jesus’ preferential love for the poor.

In our communities, we are invited to offer friendship, solidarity and welcome to the poorest of our sisters and brothers. 
Pope Francis also asks us to pray together, especially the
 Our Father.
