Welcome to the Parish Family of St. Timothy.
We invite you to join us on our journey of faith.

Our Mission is to challenge our people to grow, to encourage discipleship, to build community, and to inspire service to all by doing the following:

• Nurturing spiritual growth/faith formation of all
• Celebrating our diversity while focusing on unity
• Discovering our gifts in order to motivate service
• Embracing our talents which enables us
to bring Christ to others
• Developing our liturgy to be meaningful and representative of our entire parish family

In light of the state orders for staying at home here are some directives to help with the celebration of sacraments from the San Francisco Archdiocese Office of Worship and  Office of Faith Formation.


We were all hopeful that the shelter-in-place would be removed and that we could celebrate the Baptismal Liturgy normally done at the Easter Vigil on the Vigil of Pentecost.  With the extended shelter-in-place order, this will not be possible.  We are discussing a new common date for initiations.  We will let you know what is decided.


All Confirmations in May and June have been cancelled.


The adult Confirmations normally held on Pentecost Sunday at the Cathedral have been cancelled.  We are looking for a new date at the cathedral and will let you know as soon as we find it.


Many parishes are asking about First Communions scheduled this Spring.  Obviously, until we can gather for Mass again, this will not be possible.

Under One Roof

The Campaign for St. Timothy

Imagine an enhanced place for learning and where we connect with one another in fellowship and celebration.

A Place for Learning

School assemblies, guest speakers, intramural & team sports and other events held in our renewed space limited only by our imagination.

A Place to Connect

Our renewed Parish Center/School Gymnasium will be a place where, under one roof, we connect with one another for school activities and instill team work and camaraderie through athletic games and events.

A Place to Celebrate

Our renewed Parish Center/School Gymnasium will be a place where community and fellowship comes alive. Imagine a place for parish and school fund raisers, a teen dance; or, an event celebrating your child’s graduation.

Archdiocesan Annual Appeal


The Archdiocesan Annual Appeal (AAA) provides parishioners throughout our Archdiocese a unique opportunity to come together. Through the AAA, the over ninety parishes in our Archdiocese unite as one!

The AAA is essential to the work of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Although we are spread over the counties of Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo, we are one Archdiocese, collaborating in the ongoing mission of evangelization and education.

The theme for this year's Annual Appeal is
"Use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace." Together we are able to demonstrate our faith through the AAA by supporting such critical needs as youth and young adults, parish schools and students, social ministries, ecumenical efforts, and the greater Church.

We ask your help in instilling in the hearts of Catholics throughout the Archdiocese a true sense of stewardship and a recognition that our family of faith extends beyond our individual parish families.




Our 2020 Assessment is $63,671...thanking you in advance for doing your part!
