Saint-Sulpice is a Roman Catholic church in Jumet, a section of the Belgian town of Charleroi within Wallonia in the province of Hainaut. It is dedicated to Sulpitius the Pious.

The oldest material traces of a religious building on the site date back from the 10th century. Three churches preceding the current construction were identified during an excavation that took place in 1967. Built in a classical style, the current building was built between 1750 and 1753 by an anonymous architect.[2] The brick and limestone church is quite homogeneous. It has been listed since 1949 as a cultural heritage site.
