Response and Anticipation.

There was a good response to the choir’s invitation to enjoy a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper. On Ash Wednesday, over fifty members attended the bilingual celebration of the Holy Eucharist with imposition of ashes. Now, we look forward to the second visit of Bishop Hector Monterroso on Sunday, March 11th. Services on that day will be at the usual times of 9 a.m. (English language) and 11 a.m. (Spanish language). Bishop Monterroso, who serves as a Bishop Assistant in the Episcopal diocese of Texas, is a native of Guatemala and a life long...

Excerpts from an essay by The Rev. Gedge Gayle and The Rev. Canon Stephen Holmgren reprinted in the Winter A.D. 2017 edition of The Anglican Digest. “I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” (Book of Common Prayer, p.265)  Lent…can be a great gift to everyone who observes this time of the Church Year. Like so many things in  life, it does not just...

Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday update.

Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday update.

Mark February 13th. on your calendar. This, being the day prior to Ash Wednesday in Christian tradition, is known as Shrove Tuesday. It is a derivative of the word, ‘shrive’ or ‘shriven.’ In Anglo Saxon times, on February 13th., Christians attended confession and were shriven (absolved) from their sins in preparation for the beginning of Lent – the forty day penitential period prior to Easter. This was also the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before the Lenten fast . Pancakes of various kinds became a...

The Season of Lent is almost here!

Ash Wednesday, which heralds the beginning of the Lenten Season will be February 14th. this year. That’s right, Valentines Day! I guess it will be O.K. to eat those chocolates and certainly smell the roses before you begin whatever Lenten discipline you will be following. At St. Timothy’s, there will be one opportunity for the application of ashes. This will be at a bilingual celebration of the Eucharist at 7 p.m.

Annual State of the Church Meeting for 2018.

Posted by on Jan 15, 2018 in News | 0 comments

Today, Sunday January 14th., we held our annual church meeting. The day began with what was to have been a bilingual joint service. Unfortunately, many people were absent due to illness or other commitments. Twenty-five, primarily English language participants shared a celebration of the Eucharist with Father Wilson Singh celebrating. A few others joined us for the sandwich and chips lunch – desserts too, of course – followed by the meeting. Copies of the State of the Church Report for 2017 were available. Some of the individual...

A belated but very Happy New Year wish to all!

Please mark your calendars for the Annual Parish Meeting which is being held in the middle of January rather than on the last Sunday as previously. So, Sunday, January 14th there will be a combined, bilingual service at 10a.m. The parish meeting will follow. You will need a simple lunch. If you are able, please bring something to share – sandwiches, chips, or anything that will be easy to clean up afterwards. If you are a group leader or have any other reason to write a report, please make sure that Nancy has it by January 10th so that...

Fourth Sunday in Advent and Christmas Eve Services.

Preparation for and Enjoyment of the Bishop’s visit

Preparation for and Enjoyment of the Bishop’s visit

Saturday, October 21st., found several members of St. Timothy’s busy beautifying the area around the church and parish hall. Armed with an array of gardening tools, we attacked the vines overgrowing the bushes around the church buildings, pruned bushes, pulled weeds and dead headed roses. The result is gratifying, but we know from past experience, that repeat performances will be an ongoing requirement!  So, if you were not able to join us on the 21st., don’t fret, there will be plenty of opportunity in the future! The next day,...

Catch-up, Looking Back and Forward.

On September 16, approximately one hundred families were given assistance with the distribution of supplies to those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. A number of people worked very hard to make this possible. Our special thanks to Patty Gaspard who, although having storm damage in her own home, was the prime mover in this enterprise. We thank all those in the local area who gave supplies and a big thank you to Patty’s sister who traveled from Atlanta with a truck load of needed items. Of those who spent many hours sorting the gently used...
