Due to COVID restrictions we are taking reservations to assure there will be a place for you at Mass this Christmas.
The Archdiocese of Detroit recommends that parishioners participate at Mass only once during the four days, December 24th-27th.
Make reservations by going to Signup Genius, or fill out an RSVP card in the church Tower Entrance and leave in the Reservations box or drop off at the rectory.
Our 4:00 PM and 10:00 AM Christmas Masses will also be live-streamed. Go to our website or our Facebook page.
Must RSVP by Monday evening, December 14th.
Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 to encourage people in every corner of the globe to shift the focus of the holiday season to charity and comopassion. Giving Tuesday reminds us to give back to our communities in a meaningful way while we get caught up in shopping days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This year St. William Parish is building upon that feeling of generosity and compassion by asking our parishioners to prayerfully consider eGiving through Faith Driect. Your gifts and your participation are a blessing to us and we ask you to prayerfully consider making a donation on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

Families of Parishes
The Archdiocese is launching a new initiative called "Families of Parishes", and is the next stop in our efforts to Unleash the Gospel. Because all parishes are going to be involved,
it has the potential for creating significant changes in how parishes operate and interact.
For a series of articles about Families of Parishes, written by Fr. Michael in August, 2020,
I hope that by browsing this site you will begin to appreciate the dynamism
of our parish community!
It’s always a challenge to keep our Website updated, because our parish continues to
evolve. We have many, many active organizations, and I suspect that there's
something here for everybody, whether you have a special interest in school, religious
education, youth, adult education, Christian Service opportunities and outreach, or
social activities. First and foremost, of course, is prayer and worship.
The parish is located in the heart of Walled Lake, near Pontiac Trail and Maple (15 Mile). Our parish boundaries incorporate approximately 45 square miles, including all of Walled Lake and Wixom-and parts of West Bloomfield, Commerce, and Novi. The parish is comprised of some 1900 registered families.
New members consistently report how welcomed they feel as they join our community. Contact the parish office for registration information. The office phone number is (248) 624-1421. Periodically there are opportunities to register new parishioners after Mass.
God bless you!
Rev. Michael G. Savickas Pastor
