Fr. Bill Adams

Meet Fr. Bill Adams

After being kicked out of the altar boys and the Boy Scouts in his parish, the parents of this Alaska native had their doubts if their son would ever be a priest.  Ordained as a Redemptorist priest in 1963, Fr. Bill’s ministry began on the Kanai Peninsula in Alaska where he ate moose for the first time.  His duties took him to Oakland, California where he started a charismatic center for teaching and healing.

At one point, Fr. Bill was considering leaving the priesthood unless something radically changed his life.
It did.   He was baptized in the Holy Spirit. “The personal relationship with Jesus has renewed and fortified
my priesthood,” states Fr. Bob.  And just in time, for other events would challenge his priesthood as when a woman proposed marriage to him.

Fr. Bill served as president of the SCRC in Los Angeles and is now devoted to proclaiming the word of God through parish missions, retreats, workshops, and healing masses. “These are my most powerful experiences of God healing his people. My focus is on inner healing because I believe that is the kind of healing people need most.” His favorite scripture is the Last Supper Discourse of Jesus in John 14 -17 (15:9
“As the Father loves me, so I also love you”)  and Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
