CHANGE at ST. TIMOTHY’S

CHANGE at ST. TIMOTHY’S

At the request of the Episcopal Diocese, there will be no Spanish language Sunday service at St. Timothy’s until further notice. There is an insufficient number of bilingual supply priests who are located within a reasonable driving  distance of the church. Those who have been celebrating during the past year are either permanently engaged elsewhere, or have other commitments for the summer months. So, each Sunday, beginning April 29th., we will have a service, in English, beginning at 10 a.m.. This is a disappointing development, but...

A Joyous Celebration!

Over a hundred worshipers of all ages came together to celebrate Easter Sunday at St. Timothy’s.  White predominated in the sanctuary from altar frontal to Easter lilies, while the Easter cross in the chancel was beautiful with flowers of many colors.  The Reverend Andrea Polvino delivered a message in both Spanish and English and both languages were heard throughout in word and song. Following the service, candy filled eggs were hunted by the youth, even the toddlers quickly ‘catching on’ to what needed to be done! In the...

Come, Welcome the King! Palm Sunday Services.

Your Prayers are Needed

Please pray for those members and staff of the Channelview High School Band.This morning, as they returned from a trip to Disney World in Florida, one of the two buses transporting them fell into a ravine in Alabama. Tanner, the son of Beni and Christopher Johnson was injured. One person was killed and others have serious injuries. For those who might be concerned, Caleb Murray, my grandson, although a band member, was not with them, but please remember him and all the band members who were not on that bus but who are grieving for injured...

Comment on the Bishop’s Visit and Looking Ahead

Not even the double whammy of wet weather and the springing forward of the clocks to summer time, could keep the members of St. Timothy’s from attending worship and meeting with Bishop Monterroso on Sunday. Thirty plus members attended the 9 a.m. Eucharist, then enjoyed a time of fellowship with the bishop. Our thanks to the Daughters of the King who supplied a delicious brunch of fresh fruit and desserts. A congregation of over seventy were present for the 11 a.m. service of Baptism and Confirmation. Two members were baptized and three...

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...
