About St. Francis
The Parish of St. Francis of Assisi is a lively and active parish, serving the areas of Crosspool, Sandygate, Lodge Moor, Ranmoor, Nether Green and Fulwood.
It is part of Sheffield North Deanery in the Diocese of Hallam.
The Parish Priest is Father Kevin Thornton and the Parish Deacon is Stephen Parker. We have an active parish council and the current chair is Anthony Rossiter.
There will be a Lenten Retreat on Friday 16th (7:30pm onwards) and Saturday 17th March (9:30am to 3pm). It will be led by Fr. Kevin Hayden OSB from Ampleforth Abbey.
There will be time for silence, time to look at how to be closer to God, evening prayer and Mass at noon.
Please bring your own lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided. For more information or to book, please contact Stephen Spooner.
