2 lg stars Attention All Parishioners 

-- The following conditions MUST BE adhered to, in order to accommodate the safe and successful re-opening of Saint William the Abbot for Sunday Mass:

  • No public gatherings or greetings before or after Masses, at church entrances/exits or on any parish property.
  • Only Main entrance doors to be used for entering.  Any/all doors available for exit.
  • Facemask MUST BE WORN upon entrance to the church building.  May be removed ONLY to receive Holy Communion.
  • Hand sanitizer is available.
  • Proper social distancing guidelines MUST BE adhered to.  Seating areas are designated.  DO NOT sit in marked off areas.
  • Offertory collection baskets will not be passed during the liturgy.  Please deposit your contribution in the baskets placed by each exit door. 
  • Printed materials (hymnals, bulletins, etc…) will not be available.
  • Singing is discouraged.
  • Holy Communion will be distributed pew-by-pew.  Follow social distancing guidelines. 
  • Preferred method of Distribution of the Body of Christ is in the hand.  While distribution on the tongue is not prohibited, this method creates sanitary issues, so we ask that ALL recipients adhere to the preferred method.
  • Exiting will be pew-by-pew, and an usher will tell you when to exit.  Again, there will be no gathering in church building or parking lot.
  • We will continue to livestream all the 9:00AM daily Masses and Sunday Mass at 10:15AM. The link can be found on our website.
  • For more information regarding the Bishop’s directives, please visit the Diocesan website at https://dioceseoftrenton.org.

2 lg stars PLEASE NOTE:  Many of you have received an email that says it is from Fr. Tom.  It is asking for money or gift cards for him.  It is a SCAM!  Fr. Tom would never solicit money or gift cards from anyone.  Please delete it.  There is also one asking for the same thing for Bishop David.  That is also a SCAM.

The Social Concerns committee of St. William the Abbot Church will once again be collecting gifts for the Seniors at Preferred Care in Wall and families in the area who need some assistance for the holiday.  We will not be having a giving tree this year with tags but are looking for the items listed below.  Please drop off all donations in the box in the church lobby by December 6th.  Thank you for helping brighten the holidays for the community.

For Seniors at Preferred Care—please place the items in a gift bag so that the staff can label and distribute to the residents.  Throw blankets, socks for men or women, gloves for men or women, toiletries such as shower gel or lotion for men or women.

For local families—we are asking for donations of gift cards for stores such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, Visa gift card, and ShopRite or other grocery stores.  This will allow them to shop for the holidays.
