Children’s Liturgy of the Word

At the Sunday 9:00 a.m. Mass, Father will call all children to the altar, bless them and then a catechist teacher will escort them to the Old Baptistry for their class. They will hear the Gospel and learn about God’s message in language suited for their age level. They will also have an opportunity to read books, do crafts and on occasion watch a Br. Francis video. All children are welcome. Parents are also welcome to come and observe. Classes start the first week in September and last through the end of May.

Faith Formation (Catechists)

St. Timothy Faith Formation Program welcomes invites you to join us on our journey of Faith. Parents are the primary educators of their children. With this in mind, we are here to assist you in teaching your children about God and his Church. We provide formal faith formation classes for first thru seventh grades. We also provide a First Communion program for second grade and older children. Students are also prepared for Reconciliation (Confession) prior to First Communion.

Parent participation and attendance is required at special meetings in order to prepare their child for a sacrament. Students must be baptized (copy of certificate required) before they receive any sacraments. School age children who are not baptized are expected to attend faith formation classes for one year to prepare for Baptism and are also required to attend another year to prepare to receive any other sacrament offered at their age level.

Members of St. Timothy's Conference serve needy families, single parents, disadvantaged individuals, and persons with special needs. Spanish speaking volunteers are a plus! Members go on home visits in the mornings, or evenings as needed. Extra workers are needed during the holiday season to pack food and distribute toys. Come be the face of Jesus to the poor and see the face of Jesus in them.
