Since last summer, we have been gearing up to sponsor a refugee family, and we expect them to arrive in the coming months. St. Timothy’s will be their adoptive family during their first year in Canada.
We will help to get their children into school. We will find them a family doctor. We will make sure they learn English so that they can live and work effectively in this country. We will pay for their housing, their food, their clothes and anything else they require during their first year here. We do this because refugees arrive here with literally nothing but each other, having in many cases suffered brutality and violence that we cannot even imagine.
The cost of supporting our family will amount to between $40,000 and $50,000. Much of the funding will come from St. Timothy’s own congregation, but we would be grateful for any donations that might come from the larger community.

It is the 22nd year St. Timothy’s has been running the Christmas Kitchen event! This is something you won’t want to miss. The success of the Christmas Kitchen and Silent Auction has been the direct result of the many volunteers that help out by contributing baking supplies or baking or preserving or just shopping at the event.
So PLEASE tell your neighbours, friends and relatives NOW about our amazing sale on SATURDAY NOVEMBER 28th FROM 10:00 AM TO 1:30PM.
PLEASE consider helping! A sign-up sheet will be posted outside the office after Thanksgiving so please consider signing up to help. Our Baking Team is always looking for additional help. No experience necessary!
