African & African American Council

The AAAC is an organization founded for the African & African American members of Saint William Church. This organization began in 2001 under former pastor of Saint William, Father Joel McNeil, in an effort to promote diversity and minister to various ethnicities in the parish.

The goal of this council is to serve the spiritual needs of Saint William faith community and provide fellowship for the African & African American members of our parish.
