“And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’
with great power and glory,
and then he will send out the angels
and gather his elect from the four winds,
from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.

Mk 13: 26-27

Prayer to St. William

God our father, in Saint William, your bishop, you gave a light to your faithful people. You made him a pastor of the church to feed your sheep with his word and to teach them by his example. Help us by his prayers to keep the faith he taught and follow the way of life he showed us. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Anyone interested in using one of our halls? See, call, or e-mail  Fr. Hils.  You can reach him at 859-824-5381

Do you know someone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?  Each year, we start our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) classes for those interested in looking at the Catholic Church.  No obligation, just learn about the Faith. Have them call or see Father Hils.

Our Bible study is in full swing! You can join in at any time.  Each week we learn something new about our Bible and the stories within.  How exciting! Come join us in Leveque Hall on Thursdays from 7-8:30. Join the fellowship and fun as we learn to understand our Bible better.

St. William Church and St. John Mission

Welcome to St. William Church and St. John Mission’s Website. Here you can find out the latest that’s going on at St. William Church and St. John Mission. We hope that God blesses you all and that you will decide to join us for church services sometime or even become part of our blessed family under the Lord Jesus Christ.

November is the Month to focus on The Holy Souls in Purgatory.

 

St. Gertrude the great, said the Lord told her that every time this prayer is offered, one thousand souls would be released from purgatory. Please, let us pray for those souls who are there as they cannot pray for themselves. Help them to get to Heaven and ask them to pray for the rest of us.  Just think of the army of prayers we could amass to the glory of God the Father.

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen

 St. John Mission

If you wish to join on Sunday before 8:00 am Mass, we pray the Rosary at St John Mission.   What a fantastic way to start a Sunday!!  We also pray the Rosary at 6:00 pm Thursdays. What better way could you wrap a Thursday up then to spend a few minutes with the wonderful people of St John Mission, praying to the Blessed Mother!

St. Vincent dePaul Society:

I want to start off by saying thank you. Several of you have brought in donations of food and money over the past two weeks. Times are tight and the holidays are coming. With the unusual cold weather coming early, we have already had calls for help with electric. If you are able and would like to donate, we can always use soup, canned fruit, baked beans, jello, pudding, tuna, and boxed potatoes.  Within the next couple of weeks, I am hoping to get out a report of all the numbers of people that were helped as well as expenses and donations. I am hoping that we will have a great turn out for the Turkey Trot. I am planning on having some new pictures up on the bulletin board. Our St. William /St. John Conference appreciates all the support you give us. If you are interested in coming along to see what we do, call Kathy at 859-866-0430.
