Truth & Love

Our Parish

St Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church is based on the corner of Wretham Road and Hunters Road, Handsworth, Birmingham. Founded in 1840, the original church was, what is now St Mary's Covent located across the road from today's church. As the Catholic population increased, it was decided a bigger space was needed and in 1894, St Francis R.C. Church opened its doors to the community. The church was then refurbished in the 1980s by Monsignor Thomas Fallon.
