Recognizing Your Gifts to Serve Well

"There is a general rule concerning all special graces granted to any human being. Whenever the divine favor chooses someone to receive a special grace, or to accept a lofty vocation, God adorns the person chosen with all the gifts of the Spirit needed to fulfill the task at hand."                                     -St. Bernardine of Siena (1380-1444)

Ministry Volunteer Recruitment

To Volunteer Ministry Leaders of Saint William Parish,

It is a fixed conversation among volunteer leaders that recruiting volunteers or increasing ministry membership is nearly impossible.  But today, along with the Saint William Operation’s Team and a collaborative work-plan, recruiting and increasing a volunteer base is achievable. 

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (PEA) at Saint William Parish is a great gift of faith for the many who have found this a place of prayer and devotion for 77 years!

Consider joining this tradition by spending an hour in silent adoration with the Lord at the Adoration Chapel.  The day & hour should be the same schedule every week. For example, you may want to be scheduled at 2 pm on Tuesdays.  This will be noted with the PEA Coordinator that you will be present at this time weekly. 

Usher and Welcoming Volunteers

One of many beautiful opportunities during a Roman Catholic Mass is to see the congregation participate actively during the Liturgy.


Marriage Ministry Volunteer Opportunity

Pope Francis has made it a priority to prepare engaged couples adequately for a life-long marriage.  The witness of a Christ-centered marriage is a valuable asset which can be shared with other engaged couples.  Volunteers are now being prepared to assist with Pope Francis' priority.
