St. William joins compassionate movement

St. William Church has joined Metro Louisville’s Compassionate Louisville movement by making a 10-year commitment to being a Compassionate Congregation.

Sharan Benton, pastoral administrator of the parish, said compassion will be a primary focus in all of the church’s work in the future.

“We’ve always outreached in social justice and peace in a compassionate way,” she noted. “This call from the city (to be more compassionate) reminded us we needed to deepen our call.

“It’s a 10-year commitment to develop our community and the outreach we do to make compassion the priority,” she said, “both within our community and beyond our doors.”
