Fr. Bill Kneemiller: Returned to the Catholic Faith from the New Age

October 27, 2014 3 Comments

Father Bill grew up in a Catholic family in St. Charles, Missouri. In college he became involved, beginning with Yoga, in Eastern meditation and eventually the New Age Movement. He became so involved that for fifteen years he taught Transcendental Meditation. His return to the Catholic faith began when he became involved with a Rosary group that emphasized praying from the heart. Through this he realized that prayer was relationship and a grace and not just a meditative technique. Father Bill is now a priest of the Diocese of Davenport, Iowa.
