There are many people at St. Viator that students can be thankful for everyday. I am grateful for Father Bill. He has inspired me and so many other students to be the best version of themselves.

Last Fall, the St. Viator community celebrated Father Bill as he retired from St. Viator Church after 27 years of service to the Catholic Community. The 10 a.m. mass and reception in the St. Viator Parish Center following mass was packed with St. Viator families new and old.

Father Bill expressed, “I am filled with gratitude and thanksgiving for all the blessings that God has given me the many years I have been at St. Viator’s.”

Father Bill may be retired, but he still attends St. Viator masses where he can be seen in the pews with our parish community. He commented on his new role, “I thought I had a lot to do up there but you guys are busier down here.”

On March 4th, it will be Father Bill’s birthday and we will celebrate him again. The St. Viator Booster Club will hold its 4th Annual Golf Tournament in his honor. The committee has planned Mass on the golf course, a wonderful day of golf, and maybe even a cake after the banquet. Father Bill loves golf, and he and his golf buddies are ready to play in the tournament.

Father Bill continues to be a big part of the St. Viator family and is still committed to praying with us. He stated, “I will continue to pray for them and I ask that they continue to pray for me. St. Viator, pray for us.”
