  Come to Mass!  Something wonderful is going to happen.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.  He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming.

Jn 16: 12-13

 

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

Save the Date

We will be issuing a new parish pictorial directory in the Fall. The last time that we did this was in the year 2013. So it is time for an update. Photographers will be here on September the 16th, 17th, and 18th from 2:00 pm until 8:30 pm on those days. Please come and have your picture taken. It costs nothing, and there is no obligation to buy the photographs or the directory published. This is not only a way to keep the parish united, but also acts as an historical record of the parish.

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, Revelations, has begun!  You can check it out 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.

It’s time for Vacation Bible School!

Our Vacation Bible School begins on July the 8th at 6:30 pm. We will be exploring Saint Paul’s journey to Athens, Greece which is the cradle of Western civilization. This is very rich, and Saint Paul’s interactions with the Athenian’s is especially deep. Of course, he suffered in his efforts to bring the Gospel there. Come to the class and find out!

 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!

SVdP Corner

Calls keep coming in for food and utilities. We were also able to help a homeless couple in Williamstown.

 The open house for the pantry was a success, several people came to check it out!  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.
