2017 Lenten Almsgiving

This year, St. William has chosen to support Casa San José in Cochabamba, Bolivia during the six-week season of Lent. Casa San José is an apostolate of the Community of Saint Paul that takes in children and adolescents who are at risk of or are living on the streets and provides care, education, and familial and societal integration. It is our goal to raise 15,000 to help support this important ministry.

For the collection to be a success, we need parishioners and families to help collect donations before and after all weekend Masses throughout the Lenten season. Please click on the SignUpGenius button or contact Pat Sennott in the Church Office at 262-547-2763 ext 225 or email to volunteer.
