"GROWING SPIRITUALLY IS EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT TO GROWING INTELLECTUALLY."

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
Once a week, 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
