The Guild v2

The Father Bill Atkinson Guild

The Guild will coordinate all promotional activities associated with the Cause, and will operate under the sponsorship and direction of the Province of St. Thomas of Villanova. 

The task before friars, relatives, and friends of Fr. Bill, is to spread the word, to promote awareness, and to gather information that can assist the Cause. We invite those who knew Father Bill, or who benefited from his ministry, or were touched by his example, to send their remembrances, testimony or notice of favors received to the address indicated below.

The Legacy of

St. Augustine in the Catholic Church

Augustine was a thoughtful, empathetic, and loving servant of God. He valued community, welcomed others, and treated them the way they deserved to be treated. Augustine also laid the foundation for the Order of St. Augustine. The Order continues to explore ways to care for those in great need both in our Province work throughout Massachusetts, New Jersey, and surrounding states and in our greater missions throughout the world.

We invite you to continue to learn about St. Augustine, his life, and his teachings.

Sign up for our e-newsletter, where we share news and updates on how we continue to follow in St. Augustine’s footsteps.
