Bill Fitzgibbons is always available to help, no matter what is needed and when. He served faithfully over the last few years on the building committee and he is there every Sunday acting as usher and taking up the collection.
But, Bill is also mentor for many of the young men of the Oratory in craftsmanship. He is an accomplished wood craftsman and is an expert in statuary repair and restoration. He has trained a number of the boys as part of an organization that Bill founded... "The Nazareth Guild". Its full title is "The Honorable & Worshipful Company of Woodcarvers and Craftsman of the Nazareth Guild".
The guild's motto is "Laudantes Deum Per Opera Manuum Nostrarum" ("Glorifying God through the Works of Our Hands"). The guild was started to foster Christian virtue and craftsmanship in young men.
We have so much talent and dedication in our small membership. We hope to feature others on this blog to thank them publicly for all the help and direction they give Old St. Patrick.
