Warm Welcomers Wanted
With the resumption of Weekend Masses beginning July 4th, we need volunteers to greet those who come and to help insure our safe space. A smile and a willingness to come 15 minutes early is all that is required!
Our parish would be extremely grateful for your service in this important ministry. Please consider volunteering. If you are willing, please email Sister Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at (860) 794-5295. Once she has your information, she will be in touch with specifics.
Social Justice Ministry: Addressing Food Insecurity
As we enter our fourth month of the pandemic, food insecurity in our local community remains very prevalent and is expected to worsen. As many local individuals and families struggle to make ends meet, the Church of St. Timothy is committed to “Feed the Hungry.” Please help do that. As our weekend Masses are beginning again, we hope that weekly food donations will increase. The Social Justice Ministry has several suggestions on how you may help at this critical time. Click here for more information on how you can help.
Also, please let us know if you, or other parishioners you are aware of, might be in need of food or have other needs by calling Sr. Ann at (860) 794-5295 or emailing email@example.com All information will be kept confidential.
Now in the Choir Loft
Keep your eye out for the latest addition to our church when you return. This new cross can be found above the choir loft and was donated in loving memory of James and Agnes Carey.

From the Archdiocese – Returning to Mass: An Overview
The Archdiocese has posted a seven-minute video addressing the general guidelines for opening churches for public worship. To view the video, click here.
St. Timothy Church Open Daily. St. Timothy Church will be opened daily from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm for Individual Prayer. With the exception of ‘weekday’ Mass (see just above), no group or communal prayer of any size is allowed. Please remember to keep the request of CDC, distancing yourself from one another and always washing your hands. And, for those of you who may have missed Palms distribution, we still have blessed palms available in the back of the Church. Please come and take as many as you’d like.
You are in our prayers. Fr. LeBlanc continues to celebrate daily ‘private’ Mass for Parishioners and all affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
