WELCOME TO ST. WILLIAM THE ABBOT PARISH!

churchwe are a Roman Catholic Parish located in Howell, NJ, within the Diocese of Trenton.

We are a welcoming Catholic community, led by the Holy Spirit, are called to proclaim, and to witness to, the Good News of Salvation, so that we may grow together, among all generations, and advance the Kingdom of God, in our love and service of God and neighbor.

"We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence... The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life. We need silence to be able to touch souls. The essential thing is not what we say, but what God says to us and through us." Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta

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.

MASS IN-CHURCH
The bishops of New Jersey have ended the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation effective June 5-6, the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  The faithful are to return to the practice of participating at weekly celebration of Mass in-church.  As is always the case, the obligation does not apply to the sick, those with underlying health conditions, and those who remain fearful of COVID-19 transmission. 

The Governor did lift the mandates requiring the wearing of masks and social distancing.  Wearing a mask is an option for those who wish to do so.  We did remove all the ropes in the pews, however the hand sanitizers are still available and even though it is not mandated anymore, we will still be cleaning and sanitizing the Church after all Masses.  We will also stop livestreaming the daily Mass, but will continue with the Sunday 10:15 Mass.
