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.

Bambinelli Sunday  - Saturday 16 & Sunday 17

Each year on Gaudete Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent, children and adults bring their Baby Jesus figures from the crib at their homes to St. Peter’s Square where the Pope will bless both the people and the figurines during the Angelus. 

This year we will celebrate “Bambinelli Sunday” at Sunday Masses on Saturday 16 & Sunday 17. All are invited to bring the Baby Jesus figure from their homes to Mass to be blessed. 

A suggestion is, following the blessing, take your “bambinelli” home and place it in a gift box, wrap it, and save it for Christmas. Let this be the first gift your family opens on Christmas, when together you place your Baby Jesus figure in the crib, and have a home blessing of the Nativity for your whole family.
