  Come to Mass! Let’s celebrate a Wedding at Cana! Something wonderful is going to happen again!

And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now.”Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.

Jn 2:9-11

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.

January is the Month to focus on The Holy Name of Jesus!

Oh what wonderful things come when we invoke the Holy name of Jesus!

 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!

This year, as you worry about trying to find the right gift for a loved one or friend, don’t forget to do something for the homeless or neighbor in need. They are all around us.  A couple with a baby, nothing to wrap him in to keep warm but old rags.  No place to stay.  Sound familiar?  Share some of the bounty God has given you, if you look close enough, you just might see Jesus.  Wish Him a happy birthday.  Give some of the love He gives to us. He wants us to share that love  –   And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’   Mt 25:40

SVdP Corner

I hope everyone had a happy, holy Christmas and a blessed New Year. I kind of lost track of deadlines and dates but here we go again. We were able to help 26 families have a nice Christmas dinner. Calls are still coming in for help with utilities, food, and furniture. A call was received on New Years eve for help with rent or else eviction. We have just gone through one of the holiest seasons and so family focused events. However, many families are struggling and unable to concentrate or appreciate the season because of survival needs. Thank you for helping us to help them to have some respite and to know that they do matter. 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.
