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

Do you know someone who might be interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?  Each year in late August / early September, we start our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) classes for those interested in looking at the Catholic Church.  Have them call or see either Deacon Mike or Father Hils.

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. 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.

November is the Month to focus on the Holy Souls in Purgatory!


Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen

St. Gertrude the Great had a vision that told her every time this prayer was prayed piously, 1000 souls would be released from Purgatory.  Imagine if one person said this prayer every day of this month,  that would be 30,000 more souls in heaven to pray for you!

 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!

If you missed the “Wonderfall-fest”, you missed a great time!  Marilyn Sininger led us in our first and largest Chicken dance in St William/St. John  fall festival. A great time was there to be had!  

Adult Bible Study!! –We have come to the end of this Bible study. Our next Adult bible Study will be here in January!  Please  think about joining us as we grow in understanding and love in our Faith.  There is so much value in having a group together to find we are not alone in our questions about Catholicism, and hearing other views helps to bring a better understanding.  Please join us!

Our Saint Vincent dePaul 10th annual Turkeyfoot  5K run/walk on November 11, 2017 was a success!  Thanks to all who participated! Our SVdP chapter will be grateful for your contributions and efforts so they may reach out to those in need.

Times are hard, but we will survive, help those in need to feel alive. In their true need, there Jesus lives, and in the heart of one who gives.  When we help to fill the shelves, we then also help ourselves. Please don’t forget our St. Vincent dePaul pantry.
