Pastor's Message





“Truth! What does that mean?” 
                             —Pontius Pilate

Pilate was a 1st century politician.  I suspect he was a cynical and hardened politician who knew that the rich and powerful could decide what was truth—but at one point he was confronted with the truth of Jesus. That encounter left him troubled, but he nonetheless acted according to the political pressures of his time. He had Jesus crucified.

Not too much has changed in 2000 years. Some politicians are still driven by the winds of political change and are essentially rudderless. Others, I’m sure, are good and wise people who are trying to serve the common good. Some others, who I don’t doubt are also sincere (although perhaps shallow in their thinking), might actually believe some theoretical but unattainable goal, and are determined to maintain that belief even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, no matter what negative consequences may occur.  (Their motto seems to be: “Just ignore the truth…hold onto the ideal!”)  Still others, I suspect, are willing to treat truth as malleable. In any case, our nation, whether led by politicians who are all too human, or driven by larger social forces, is in a crisis of truth.

Grief Ministry


We cannot escape the love of God! We also cannot escape grief. So many people are suffering from the loss of a loved one, loss of  job, or the loss of a relationship.  Grief takes many forms.  One thing we know for sure about grief is that love is healing.

Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn, for
they will be comforted.”

Would you please consider joining us in Grief Ministry at St. William Parish?  The only thing you need to be part of this ministry is to love our Lord. READ MORE HERE. Please reach out to me with any questions.

Prayers of the Faithful

Our Good Shepherd knows us and leads us and lays down his life for us.  Trusting in him, we offer our prayers to the Father.  

    • For the pastors of the Church: that the Good Shepherd will help them tend to the flocks entrusted to their care, let us pray to the Lord.
    • For an increase in vocations to the priesthood, and that those called will respond eagerly, let us pray to the Lord.
    • For those who were brought into the Church at Easter, and for our young people who are preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this Wednesday, let us pray to the Lord.
    • That the members of the Church may be effective witnesses, boldly proclaiming the Gospel message throughout the world, let us pray to the Lord.

Missionary Discipleship and Stewardship

As we continue a new year of missionary discipleship, we hope that you prayerfully consider a deeper committment to stewardship and all the mission work we need to do. 

Your generosity overfunded our CSA target so we will be receiving a nice refund, but we need each of you to consider if you can do a bit more to financially support our good works.  Just $5 per week from each  of you could add nearly $200,000 to our budget. 

God bless you all.

Easter Season Mass Schedule


For so many working Christians, it’s too easy to get overwhelmed by the distractions of daily living.

The 3-Minute Reset is a simple, daily discipline focused on spending a moment in thought and prayer, and rediscovering the peace that is always available to us. Hosted by Pat Lencioni and Chris Stefanick.

Discipleship Opportunities

"Father, you call me to serve, and I know that Christian service means givng of my time and my talents - both gifts from you Lord. Give me the grace to collaborate with Christ your Son in the salvation of souls by offering others what you have given so gratiously to me. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Out of love for Christ and because we are all "called to serve," please examine these opportunities to serve Him and our Parish.
