 As you are aware, the Bishops of Ohio have “temporarily suspended all publicly celebrated Masses and Liturgies, at least through the celebrations of Holy Week and Easter.” (from the Bishops statement issued yesterday afternoon.) This is a rapidly changing situation (in fact the letter sent to all parishioners yesterday is already outdated!).  For St WIlliam Parishioners, the best way to continue the mission of the parish and church under these unusual circumstances,  is to subscribe to the app. This is an effective way to remain in contact with the actions St William Parish is taking  and receive updates and information.  Please click link below to subscribe!  Or you can join the APP by texting APP to 88202…download the app and select our parish after opening.  There are easy installation instructions also on the parish website, and they can call the parish office for assistance.

Steve Grunow, CEO of Word on Fire.

Finally, please continue to pray for all those affected by the coronavirus.

O Holy Mother of God, Pray for us

Novena to Our Lady of Help

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.

O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.  Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.

Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.

Under thy protection we seek refuge,

O Holy Mother of God.

In our needs, despise not our petitions,

but deliver us always from all dangers,

O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.

Principles

What We Do!

 

From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.

2017 was a record-setting year for Knights of Columbus charitable work with an unprecedented $185.6 million in donations and 75.6 million hours of service provided worldwide. The monetary value of K of C’s service hours is valued at $1.9 billion based on an estimate by Independent Sector, a network for nonprofit foundations that values a 2017 volunteer hour at $24.69.The K of C’s 2017 survey of charitable giving also showed that monetary donations increased $8 million from 2016 (+4.5 percent) and service hours grew by 527,550 (+0.7 percent). Year-over-year annual growth in both categories has been consistent over the past two decades.

Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. Our own unique charities include the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, Disaster Relief, Ultrasound Initiative, and Coats for Kids. We also partner with international charities including Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity.

Through our Building the Domestic Church initiative, Knights and their families have greater opportunities to participate in a variety of activities that deepen their faith, promote the New Evangelization, and strengthen our parishes.

"We are answering Pope Francis’ call to go to the peripheries,” Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said. “We can reach half way around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. And we do that every day. That makes us witnesses to the faith."

If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of nearly 2 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us.

Come Join Us!

 BRAIN TUMOR FACTS

Today, an estimated 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and over 86,000 more will be diagnosed in 2019. Brain tumors can be deadly, significantly impact quality of life, and change everything for a patient and their loved ones. They do not discriminate, inflicting men, women, and children of all races and ethnicities.

Sisters Jackie & Juliette (right)

CHAMPION OHIO - Members of Knights of Columbus Council 7491 set out to do something nice for the family of area teen Juliette Dietl, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

They organized a spaghetti dinner Nov. 16 at St. William Church to raise money to help offset costs associated with trips from Boardman Ohio, to Philadelphia for surgery and cancer treatments.

It turned out to be the kind of story that lifted the hearts of everyone who heard it as the bubbly girl and her family told of her diagnosis, treatment and good fortune of a successful surgery at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
