Re-opening of St Francis Church

We are preparing for the re-opening of St Francis Church for Sunday Mass from Sunday 4 October. The guidelines for re-opening give more information on how it will work. If you wish to attend, you must book a place.

We need many volunteers to help us re-open safely. If you would be willing to help, please contact Clare Byrne.

S2 Foodbank

The S2 Food Bank is in need of our support and need will continue to increase due the current financial uncertainties. Although we are currently unable to drop off food donations at St Francis, we can take food donations directly to the S2 Food Bank on Tuesdays (10am-3pm) or Wednesdays (8am-4pm). The address is: St Swithuns, Cary Road Sheffield S2 1JP.

You can find a list of the food bank’s current needs on their Facebook page.

You can also support the foodbank financially, either through a one-off donation or by setting up regular payments. Details can be found on their website.
