What Members Say Add your voice

  • I have been a member of St. William Church for more than 30 years. My husband and two youngest sons began visiting occasionally when my sons did not have to attend Catechism class at the church we were registered. In s very short time we joined St. William Parish. It was almost immediate that we felt like we belonged here at St. William . I never second guessed our decision. Ron and I joined Marriage Encounter and almost immediately, Father Murray and John and Patty Heib, who were part of the Marriage Encounter Team. The Knights of Columbus and John Makosky also were a powerful mentors and guide to Ron's life in the Church. Many years have gone by but I will never forget all the angels God put in our life to shape us into the people of God.
