Remember, God doesn’t need us, we need Him! Come join us at Mass. Something wonderful is going to happen!
“Whoever receives one child such as this
in my name, receives me;
and whoever receives me,
receives not me but the One who sent me.”
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 have started our new Bible Study! It is on the Gospel of Matthew. The video is led by Jeff Cavins, and promises to be a continuation of the Bible Timeline Adventure. 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. 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!

Prayer for Vocations
God, our Father
You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that You inspire those in our Diocese whom You are calling to the priesthood to courageously follow Your will. Send laborers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and Your people are strengthened by the sacraments.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
St. Vincent dePaul Society:
Thank you for your continued support to help our neighbors in need. A little over a thousand dollars came to us from the SVdP collection at the end of August. The calls keep coming in for help with utilities, rent, and food. One call this week came from a homeless couple. Where do you begin? We know there are others out there as well. If you would like to help out with the pantry, we are still in need of jelly, canned peaches and fruit cocktail. We would love to have some new members to help with various tasks. If you would like to come on a home visit or just talk about possibilities, call Kathy at 866-0430.
