Announcements

Driven by Prayer:  Join us next Sunday afternoon for Coffee Hour outside in the St. Tim’s parking lot!  Take a Sunday drive after worship and head to St. Timothy’s for a drive-through prayer.  It’s been awhile since we’ve seen one another.  So, gather your masks and gloves and come and meet the clergy, staff and wardens in the parking lot for prayer between 11:30 AM and 1 PM on Sunday, June 28!

Prayer Mind-Hive:  We want to know about your experiences during lockdown.  What key blessings have you received during this time, what things are you ready to leave behind, and what things were so life-giving- you would like to see more of them?  Come talk with us on Zoom (by phone or video), and spend some time in prayer as we consider what it means to come back to church.  We’ll meet on Tuesday, September 1 at 7 PM on zoom. 

Thank you!  Special thanks to The Honourable Jim Karygiannis, Councillor from Ward 22, Scarborough-Agincourt, who arrived at St. Timothy’s with his entourage last Friday to deliver masks and sanitizer to our parish!  This was greatly appreciated and helpful as we begin to prepare PPE and other items for our return to public worship.

VBS Summer Camp: St. Timothy’s Summer Camp will be going VIRTUAL this year from (July 13th – 17th) online with Zoom.  Be sure to register your children by emailing Elaine at  associate@sttims.ca and let the adventure begin!
