Associates in mission are women and men who share in the mission and spirit of the Sisters of Charity. They commit to explore a new dimension of Christian life, one that calls for a deeper fidelity to the Gospel and to live out a spirituality of attention to God in prayer in each other wherever God’s love is made visible as life unfolds each day. This is a mutually enriching relationship with the opportunity to share faith and the awareness of how the Gospel impacts our lives and our world.
The Knights of Columbus is an international charitable organization of Catholic men. While independent of St. William Parish, many members of the “Mother Seton Council,” whose headquarters are across the street from the Church, are St. William Parishioners. The Knights are involved in promoting the Catholic faith and the Church’s mission by a commitment to charitable works, moral support for priests, and opportunities for fraternity and spiritual growth. Catholic men over eighteen years of age are eligible.
