About Us

Our Mission

The love of God causes us, as stewards of St. William of York Roman Catholic Church, to promote and continue the mission of Jesus Christ through worship, education, fellowship, social justice and service.

We receive the grace to fulfill our mission through prayer and the celebration of the sacraments, especially Eucharist. Strengthened by our individual experiences and encouraged by one anotherís faith, as a small parish community we move forward secure in direction and strong in devotion to Christís Word, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

History of Our Parish

The parish of St. William of York was established on July 1, 1914, by James Cardinal Gibbons, the Archbishop of Baltimore. On December 27, 1914, Cardinal gibbons assisted by Bishop J. Shahan, who was a founder and third rector of the Catholic University of America, dedicated the church. Father Pasquale di Paola, the first pastor, and many Jesuit and diocesan priests attended.



Vision and Plan

We aspire to be a more vibrant and thriving parish community that builds Godís Kingdom by bringing love, justice, and mercy to the world.  We commit ourselves to be (in the words of St. Teresa of Avila) "the eyes through which Christís compassion looks out on the world . . . . the feet with which He is to go about doing good . . . . and the hands with which He is to bless us now."

 



Parish Prayer

Come Holy Spirit,
Guide St. Agnes and St. William parishes in our efforts to work and worship together. Reveal to us Your plan for our parish families. Increase our love for You and Your Catholic Church. Give us wisdom to know how to best use our parish facilities and resources. Give us zeal to share our Catholic Faith with our neighbors and to bring them into our parish family. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
