Fliers listing the donation needs are in the crib and at church entrances.  Thank you!

THANK YOU for your generous support for those in need.          

 

A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR

Next weekend, January 22/23, Fr Michael Joncas is scheduled to be at St William. This is tentative because of the Covid situation. 

As I announced last weekend, the number of priests who have tested positive for Covid is rapidly increasing. Because we have so few priests who can substitute, some parishes have had to cancel masses or do word/communion services during the week and on the weekend. This is a good time to remember that Covid is still a real and serious threat to our health. Even if we have been vaccinated and received the booster, we can still contract the virus, and spread it to others. Please wear a mask when at daily and weekend Mass and take necessary precautions.  Masks and hand disinfectant may be found at all entrances to the church.

We will also be moving daily Mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 am into the main church instead of the chapel to social distance. 

Monday, January 17th is a holiday in honor of Martin Luther King, JR.  The parish office is closed.

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.
