"Our DREAM BIG Car Raffle Winners!!!

The Parish Council and Fr. Gron would like to congratulate the winners of our Dream Big Car Raffle.

Third Prize winner(s) is Charles and Patricia Boyle.

Second prize winner is Teresa Anna Wypych, who has donated the $1500 prize to the parish.

First prize winner..?

Well that's a great story...

Fr. Gron and the Parish Council invited Bishop Manz to the Cruising With The Saints Party-Drawing held on January 12th.

During the Homily at the 4:30 Mass Bishop Manz joked about not having a ticket for the car raffle.

A avid parishioner and volunteer here at St. William,  Maria Alvarado, bought a ticket for the Bishop. 

During the event Bishop Manz awarded Barbara Rogers the parishioner of the year award. 

Barbara greatly deserved this award due to her many years of service to the parish as a Cantor, Choir member and long time parishioner, among other duties.  Our heart felt congratulations and appreciation goes out to her.

Bishop Manz had to leave before the car raffle drawing.  

He handed his ticket to Christopher Gonzales who is a student in the St. William RCIA Program and was volunteering at the event that night.

The Bishop told Christopher if the ticket is drawn that Christopher could have the prize 

And Guess What Happened...

Bishop Manz's ticket was drawn and Christopher won first prize.

When Christopher called his mother Maria to tell her he won she did not believe him at first. Then finally, after some convincing she came to the party and believed.  
God works through so many people.... this is evidence of that truth. 

WHAT A GREAT NIGHT!!!

Thank you to all who purchased and sold tickets, volunteered in any capacity and supported the raffle for our parish.
