A Full schedule of Harvest Fest Events will be coming soon.  Check back for updates!  In the meantime, please see below for opportunities to help out:

Harvest Fest Basket Raffle:  It is not too early to think about donating a basket for the Parish Harvest Fest.   In keeping with the high quality over the years, we ask each basket contain items with a total minimum value of $60.  Consider asking a few families to go in together to create a basket.  Come up with your own theme or call me and I can give you ideas.  Baskets may be brought to school office anytime after September 4 with a deadline of September 7th.  It is very helpful to have an itemized list of the items written out and attached as a tag to the basket.  To add your name to the donation list, or for ideas, please call Bobbi O’Leary at 758-9620 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Popular contributions in the past have included gift cards, electronics, family getaway packages, craft items, tickets to events, sports apparel and collectables, small appliances, and workshop tools. Be creative! We've auctioned off a homemade pie-a-month for a year, lawn care services, handmade fishing lures, dinner out plus babysitting for a special mom & dad date night.

Praying the Rosary

The Rosary will be prayed every Monday at 7:00pm in the Chapel.  If any questions, please call Bill Brennan at 608-449-0502.

Gluten-Free Hosts Available

St. William offers gluten-free hosts to address the needs of those affected by Celiac disease or other conditions.  If you wish to receive a gluten-free host, when it is time to receive communion, we ask that you say “gluten-free” clearly and audibly for the Priest or Eucharistic Minister to hear.  Please do this every time, even when you think the Priest or Eucharistic Minister knows who you are.  If you have a child who will be receiving a gluten-free host please make sure that they also speak clearly as well.

 

Handicapped Accessible

St. William Catholic Church was built with handicapped features in mind.  Getting around is easy at St. William as everything is located on one floor and no stairs are required.  The circular driveway at the church door entrance acts as a nice drop-off/pick-up access area and leads right into the private parking lot which has several handicapped parking spaces available too!
