The Refugee Sponsorship Committee is very happy to announce the long-awaited arrival in Canada of the refugee family the Church of St.Timothy has sponsored! Our family consists of two young parents and two children, a girl and a boy aged 4 and 3. The family is originally from Myanmar (Burma), a country with many desperate refugee problems, and they arrived in Toronto on June 20th. (follow this link for more information about the status of refugees in Malaysia).
We are very grateful to parish members (and our neighbourhood community) for their support, to the Anglican United Refugee Alliance for finding us this family, and to our partnering church St. Leonard's for their able assistance. Our Committee continues in its efforts to support our family and we will keep the community updated regularly with news and requests for assistance when needed.
We are looking forward very much to helping our family settle in to their new life as Canadians!

Tuesday, September 20, 10:30 AM 'They Left Us Everything'. Canadian writer Plum Johnson's debut novel.
It is a memoir of the trials and tribulations of 20years of caring for aging parents and the ensuing conflicting feelings after the death of the last surviving parent - her mother at age 93. A good read. Very thought provoking.

Men′s Breakfast Club
Please be sure to join us once a month on Saturday morning at 8:00 in Soward Hall for a delicious breakfast, great coffee and wonderful conversation.
The STOP Community Food Centre’s Food Bank provides a three day supply of food, once per month, to individuals and families who live in The STOP’s catchment area in west Toronto. Please remember to bring non-perishable food on Sundays and place your donations in the basket in the narthex.
We recently decided to begin opening the main part of the church to our neighbours during the week. While the office building is busy all week long with schoolchildren, dance classes and so on, the church itself is rarely open during the week. Thanks to a team of 11 volunteers, anyone can now come in through the front doors on any weekday and spend some quiet time in St. Timothy’s between 11 am and 1 pm. A sign near the sidewalk indicates the church is open and welcomes visitors inside.
