  Come to Mass!  Something wonderful is going to happen.

Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!

Lk 6:20-22

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.

Our Bible study is in full swing! 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.

February is the Month to focus on The Holy Family!

After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astounded at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him, they were astonished, and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.” And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”* But they did not understand what he said to them. He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus advanced [in] wisdom and age and favor before God and man.!

Lk 2: 46-52
