Help Rebuild St. William Parish near Avondale, AZ.

A terrible fire tore through St. William Catholic Church near Avondale, Arizona, on May 1st. The blaze started early in the morning and destroyed the church building (which serves 1,000 families), the parish hall, classrooms, and even the on-site food bank. Sadly, the food bank, run by the Society of St. Vincent De Paul, helped over 25 families in need each week.

Investigators are still investigating what caused the fire. While the church has insurance, your donations help staff and the community. These funds will cover unexpected costs and expenses that insurance will not.

If you’d like to support the St. William community during this difficult time, visit or contact the Diocese of Phoenix for more information.
