THE HISTORY OF OUR CHURCH
The Church of St William was started in 1963 by Archbishop Leo Binz who named the parish after his predecessor, Archbishop William Brady. St William was born in 1085 in Vercelli, Italy. William was a hermit who led a life of solitude, prayer, penance and sharing of faith by founding several religious communities in Italy. It is said that St. William performed a miracle by restoring the sight to a blind man. St. William died in 1142. His feast day is observed on June 25.
