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 text, Deacon Mike.  You can reach him at 859-806-4440 or email him at

Welcome New Members
We would like to offer our congratulations and a big welcome to all those who are new to not only our local parish but to all those new to the catholic way of life.

October is the Month to focus on the Holy Rosary!


Archbishop Fulton Sheen said, “The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description.

 St. John Mission

If you wish to join on Sunday before 8:30 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! On the first Thursday of every month, we have Eucharistic Adoration followed by the Rosary at 6:00 pm.
