Dear Friends and Family,

In an effort to ensure optimal health and safety for all those attending our outdoor Masses, we have adopted a HYBRID model of chairs/cars. The Masses will now be held in front of the church (moved from the school front.)


1. Those of you who enter through the 3rd Avenue gates who want to sit in the chairs -  turn to the right and park.

2. Those of you who enter through the 3rd Avenue gates who want to stay in your cars,  turn to the left and park facing the front of the church.

3. Those of you who enter through the Norfolk Avenue gates who want to sit in chairs -  turn to the left and park.

4. Those of you who enter through the Norfolk Avenue gates and want to stay in their cars will turn right and park facing the front of the church.


 We will have a station set up for the people receiving communion in their cars. Temperature taking will be required if you are receiving.


EVERYONE must consent.

If you and your family members sign up through Flocknote, you are in compliance. 

If you or anyone of your family members do NOT sign up through Flocknote, you will be asked to fill out a consent form before Mass begins.

We continue to strive to serve our parishioners to the best of our ability and are hopeful that this new HYBRID version of outdoor Mass will fulfill the needs of everyone. 

Thank you and God Bless ~

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.


Faith Formation Confirmation will take place Saturday, August 15th, 2020 outdoors in front of St. Timothy School at 10:00 a.m. For questions, please contact Ana Park at  650-218-4876


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.


First Communion will take place Saturday, August 29th, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. outdoors in front of St. Timothy School. For questions, please contact Ana Park at 650-218-4876

Dear St. Tim’s Family,


I hope this letter finds you healthy and safe.  Together with the rest of the world during this pandemic, we find ourselves reeling with the fast-paced turn of events  as we are managing our health, well being and financial obligations.  During these unprecedented times, our St. Timothy Church is challenged and is hit with a financial uncertainty.  I implore you, my dear family, to help us weather this hardship so we can keep our church in serving and nourishing our faith.

As it has been communicated, we are in a financial crisis.  In the past few months, especially from February through June, our average monthly collection was $13,979.00. So, with our estimated monthly budget at 49,197.00, our average monthly loss is $35,218.       

In an effort to raise funds in full support of our Church, we agreed to proceed with our much loved and highest fundraising event, our Sixth Annual St. Timothy Walk-a-Thon, on September 19, 2020. Your participation will surely help our parish. Our goal is to keep everyone safe during this walk and every effort will be made to adhere to our local and state guidelines.  As we plan, we will keep you updated with the details and logistics of the event.  Please stay tuned.

In the meantime, you may now-

  • Sign up and register for the St. Timothy Walk-a-Thon.  Registration fee is $25 per person.  While we understand that you may not be able to walk due to some circumstances or restrictions, still your registration fee will be much appreciated.
  • Send your  donation or sponsor somebody.  Any amount is welcomed and appreciated.  You may go to our St. Timothy webpage ( under donations- Parish Walk-a-Thon, or mail your check to our office. 

Thank you for your continued support to the Church.  We look forward to a successful St. Timothy 2020 Walk-a-Thon.

Sincerely yours,    Fr. Al

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!
