Come to Mass! Something wonderful is going to happen.
good indeed is the LORD,
His mercy endures forever,
his faithfulness lasts through every generation.
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.
We are getting ready for a new Bible study, Revelations! Sign up today. We start May 23, 2019. 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.
Have you taken the time this week to thank the Lord for his Passion for us? Have you thanked Him for the ridicule, the torture, the shame He suffered for love of us? Didn’t He tell us that no greater love can be shown than to give ones life for a friend?
Thank You God, for everything!
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.
May is the Month to focus on The Blessed Virgin Mary!
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.
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!

Calls keep coming in for food and utilities. We were also able to help a homeless couple in Williamstown.
We are going to have an Open House for the pantry on Sunday, May 19th after Mass. Many of you have supported us through the years but probably have not seen the pantry. We will have a display of what we give families as well as some information about the St. Vincent de Paul Conference.
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. We could really use some help in going on home visits.
