The Refugee Sponsorship Committee is very pleased to announce that the Church of St.Timothy has now been matched with an eligible refugee family. We are still awaiting further details, but as of now we have been advised that our family consists of two 28 year old parents and two children, a girl and a boy aged 4 and 2. The family is originally from Myanmar (Burma), a country with many desperate refugee problems, and they are currently living in Malaysia (follow this link for more information about the status of refugees in Malaysia).
While we hope our family can arrive in Canada sometime in the summer, the timetable for processing refugees is notoriously unpredictable. However, we are very happy to at last have a specific family to look forward to welcoming. In the meantime we hold them in our thoughts and prayers.
We are very grateful to parish members (and our neighbourhood community) for their support, to the Anglican United Refugee Alliance for finding us a family, and to our partnering church St. Leonard's for their able assistance. Our Committee will ramp up its efforts to prepare for the arrival of our family and we will keep the community updated regularly with news and requests for assistance when needed.

Family Fun Time – BBQ and Games Night
Friday, May 27, 2016. Time: 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Come out and enjoy a BBQ dinner along with some fun outdoor games. Besides having the usual 3-legged race and potato sack race, we will be having our annual Anglican egg toss!! If you haven’t participated in the egg toss before, it is quite the event, lots of fun, and potentially messy! All ages welcomed. Hope to see you there!
May 16th Community Lunch: Thank you very much to everyone who donated food including those who passed on extra food from their own social events from the weekend. As well as the meal, guests were given a sandwich, water and if desired, a tetra pack of Boost as they left. Thank you also to those who helped in the kitchen, served and helped to clean up. Our June 27th Community Lunch will be a BBQ for our guests.
May 29th Outreach Committee Meeting: The Outreach Committee will meet in the Library following the 10 am service. This meeting is open to anyone who is interested in attending and learning about the work of the Outreach Committee.
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.

PARISH PRAYER LIST
Our parish prayer list is a special way in which we support someone in a particular moment of illness, need or difficulty. To request prayers for someone, please contact the church office with the person’s name. The name will remain on the list for four weeks, and may be renewed upon request. Thank you for helping to keep our prayer list current
