We Are Spiritual 

A Spiritual Life

For everyone at St. William School, growing spiritually is equally important to growing intellectually.  Our students learn what it means to be Catholic.  The St. William faculty provides fertile soil in which our students’ faith can grow fruitful and strong.  Through word and deed, our students learn and live the Gospel. 

A Prayerful Life

At St. William School, every day begins with prayer.  Praying the “Our Father” and “Hail Mary,” while essential, only introduces St. William students to praising, thanking, and petitioning God.  Through our students’ written and oral lessons, they learn to talk to God like a friend, and cherish the comfort that comes from talking with the Lord. 

A Reverent Life

Twice a month, and for the holidays, our students and faculty gather together in St. William Church to celebrate Mass, and everyone is involved.  We have a student choir that guides the congregation in the musical parts of the Mass.  Our grades take turns organizing the Masses.  As a result, not only do our students learn the order of the Catholic Mass, all of our students have the opportunity read aloud Scripture readings to the congregation.  Whether it be singing, praying, or reading St. William students fully engage in worshiping God.

A Sacramental Life

The teachers and priests of St. William prepare our students to receive the sacraments.  More than a milestone, our students understand how God’s grace flows through the sacraments and enriches their lives and the life of every Catholic.  With this assuring knowledge, St. William students learn how to rely on this sacramental strength all through their lives

A Life of Service

Not only do our teachers provide St. William students with the tools necessary to succeed in society, but our teachers also provide the tools necessary to live a life of moral and social awareness through the corporal works of mercy.  Our students volunteer at the Bethesda Home, spending time conversing with and entertaining the residents.  Our students raise money for various charities, like Operation Rice Bowl and Catholic Charities, through rummage and bake sales.  Our sixth graders stock, organize, and collect food for the St. Vincent DePaul Society Food Pantry.  Through these acts of service, St. William students learn to act as Christ, working to serve the least of our sisters and brothers.  They learn to teach as Christ, encouraging others to volunteer.  They learn to be like Christ, giving to others out of love. 

An Active Life

 St. William students understand that they are more than just students.  Our students are members of a community that works together.  Thus when called upon, our student ambassadors lead tours of the school, volunteer for parish events, and help whenever needed during the school yearSt. William School also supports Christian values through our Boy and Girl Scout programs.  There are many ways for our students to stay involved in the St. William community.
