The tempter approached and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves of bread.”

 He said in reply, “It is written:

‘One does not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.’”

Mt 4:3-4

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

Important! The Messenger- each family registered in the parish should be receiving The Messenger. If you have not been receiving it, please give your name to Carol Rector or Fr. Hils.

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.

 REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

No Greater Love

A  new study will begin on February 27, 2020.  No Greater Love. Imagine walking beside Jesus as He makes his way through the passion. A heavy wooden cross thrown on his back, carry this for a mile after being scourged, beaten, ridiculed, and betrayed. What Love he must have had for us, to keep going to save us.  Each week stands on its own, you can jump in at any time.  What good fellowship it is!  Sign up in the gathering area, or let Suzi Noel know you’re interested.  Thursdays 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

February is the Month to focus on The Holy Family! 

 

HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, make our family one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. May we always have God at the center of our hearts and homes until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you. Amen.
