Parish of St. Timothy: 35th Anniversary
A message from Fr. Brian and the Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish of St. Timothy is 35 years old this year! Were you there for the first Mass in the St. Germain School gym on September 11, 1988? How about the Mass of Consecration in our sanctuary in December of 1994?
A lot has happened over the last 35 years since St. Timothy became a parish in the Archdiocese of St. Boniface. There have been many weddings, baptisms, funerals, first holy communions, confirmations, and catechism classes. We have welcomed many individuals to become fully initiated into the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) over the years.
We look forward to celebrating this milestone with a pastoral visit from Archbishop LeGatt to our parish in the week leading up to September 16th, 17th. Mark your calendars for a weekend of celebration on September 16 and 17, 2023. Archbishop LeGatt will be presiding at each of our Sunday Masses that weekend. We are planning a parish community feast on Sunday, September 17th.
There is a small group of individuals starting to plan events. The group is open to hearing ideas about how our parish community might celebrate. How can we celebrate in a meaningful way? What would you like to see happen? If you want to share ideas, be involved to help with the planning, organizing, and celebrating as a parish community, please contact Grace at the parish office at email@example.com or 204-949-3760.
Our 35th anniversary is marking our first Mass together, so the Eucharist being represented in the logo is important to communicate as the “source and summit” of our parish life and unity.
