A Property Update – St. Timothy’s Trees.

A Property Update – St. Timothy’s Trees.

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas, of which we at St. Timothy’s are a part, owns the entire block of land where our church is located. This is a mixed blessing for church members. While allowing plenty of space for outdoor activities, its upkeep is prohibitive in terms of dollars and volunteer time and sweat! The large undeveloped area was originally graced with many trees, but time and nature have resulted in numerous empty spaces. Hurricane Ike alone, in September 2008, destroyed or severely damaged more than sixty, necessitating their...

The Legacy of Saint Francis – sad news/good news.

The Legacy of Saint Francis – sad news/good news.

First, the sad news. This ministry, begun last summer and included in the post for St. Francis’ Day in October, has been discontinued. Too few people willing to foster, a shortage of funds and difficulty in finding a location where potential adopters could meet the animals are the principle reasons. However, the departure of Father Fred Clarkson is also a factor as he was the prime mover in the creation of the ministry. However, good news, during its brief existence, some animals found new homes. Two such are Charlie, who was featured...

Fundamental Changes at St. Timothy’s

Posted by on May 30, 2017 in News | 0 comments

April 30th., we said, “Goodby” to Father Fred Clarkson. He has moved on to other work within the Diocese. For the foreseeable future, there will be no full time priest at St. Timothy’s. However, Sunday services are still being held with the assistance of bilingual supply priests. Last Sunday, we were fortunate to have the Reverend Eileen O’Brian from Houston Canterbury. The latter is the ministry to students at the University of Houston and surrounding community colleges. She will again be with us next Sunday, June...

Easter and Technological Headaches!

Easter and Technological Headaches!

May I belatedly say that those who attended the Holy Week services were blessed. The Maundy Thursday Agape meal brought us together to the Lord’s table in a rarely experienced but always memorable way. Though few attended the Good Friday services and the Easter Eve service of First Fire, those who did found them inspiring and a fitting preparation for Easter. On Easter Sunday, a bilingual service brought both congregations, friends and relatives to celebrate the Risen Lord. Busy bunnies – or chickens ?! – left hundreds of...

Easter Sunday; Celebrate the Day of Our Lord’s Resurrection!

Today, there will be no 11 a.m. service. We ask all members of St. Timothy’s, our friends, relatives and all who wish to celebrate with us, to gather in the church at 9 a.m. for a bilingual service of Holy Eucharist. Please bring flowers to flower the cross. After worship, we will have an Easter egg hunt, outside if the weather cooperates but – somehow(!) indoors if we have April showers. So, kids, bring your baskets or whatever you can use to gather the loot, attend service then get ready to hunt. You will then be asked to empty...
