Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever.   Amen.
Liturgical Notes
Lord Jesus Christ,
who hast built thy Church
upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets:
mercifully grant that building upon thee, the chief
cornerstone, with beauty and substance,
we may raise here at St Timothy's a
faithful people and a holy temple to thy glory.
May we and generations yet to come learn to praise thee
more and more in spirit and in truth.
Amen.

I hope to see you at Evensong & Benediction this Thursday. The choir will sing

This Sunday the choir will sing Anton Bruckner's beautiful motet Locus iste.  Click here  to read some program notes about the piece and  here  to hear a recording by The Sixteen.
This place was made by God, 
a priceless sacrament; 
it is without reproach.

O day of radiant gladness, No. 48
Christ, whose glory fills the skies, No. 7
Eternal light, shine in my heart, No. 466
I call on thee, Lord Jesus Christ, No. 634
Spread, O spread thou mighty word, No. 530

Suggest a hymn that is meaningful to you!
Is there a hymn that you would like to sing in mass this summer? Share why is it meaningful to you or write a blurb about it for the News & Notices. If it is a hymn that fits well in one of our summer masses, we will certainly include it.

Sing in the choir!
Summer Sunday Singers (all ages and abilities welcome!) will help lead the hymns, psalms, and anthems this summer.

You may sing any Sunday that you are able whether that is one Sunday or all summer.

Holiness of Beauty | Capital Campaign
Raising a Faithful People and a Holy Temple
Chris Skarzinsky
Throughout this campaign we have talked a lot about the “Beauty of Holiness.” I know that my faith is strengthened by prayer, and that my prayers are strengthened by being in an environment where I feel especially close to God. It may be sitting at the edge of an ocean or looking out over a majestic mountain top. But most often, that place is right here inside the walls of St. Timothy’s. So I freely admit that I would fully support this campaign if enhancing the beauty of our church were the only consideration. But it’s not. There are practical considerations also.
 
First there is the choir loft. Who among us could have imagined 20 years ago that a choir loft that holds 50 people would not be large enough? Our music program is phenomenal with so many of our young people creating a joyous beauty of holiness with their voices. We desperately need more space for them.

Second, we need to enlarge our baptismal area. Whether it is an infant being presented by parents, or a youth or adult who has found their way to Christ, this area needs to be worthy of the precious sacrament being administered there.  

So for these practical reasons, and for the simple reason of creating a more beautiful space to worship our Lord, I support this campaign.

First Thoughts From The Sheepfold:
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
In Children's Formation, we have taken the first week of Growing Time literally! We are using these summer weeks to clean up, move around, and make sure we are meeting the growing needs of the children in our parish. Want to stay in the loop weekly?   Add y our nam e  to our growing email list.

Our Pre-K children (ages 3-rising Kindergarteners) enjoyed their first morning in Summer Children's Formation in a new space designed to maintain their reverence and focus, but also give them a break from the Atrium materials. This new room is only temporary until the Fall when our newer, bigger Atrium will welcome them back after Labor Day. We need volunteers to help us this summer for the 9:00 AM Children's Formation. This class does not require any formal training to assist. Please email Katie Bryant if you are available:  katie@sttimothys.ws

As we continue to prepare our bigger Atrium, we have put together a project plan for the summer to ensure we are ready to go in the Fall. Many hands are needed to make this implementation successful. For the next two weeks (May 27-June 9): Prep and paint the Older Toddler Nursery (C-2). If you are interested in helping us paint this room, let  Emily Ball  know. Our schedule is flexible to accommodate for volunteers' schedules. 

We are also diligently working on a blog dedicated to St. Timothy's Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and look forward to formally launching the site in a few weeks.

In advance, we are compiling a list of families who are interested in receiving more detailed information about our plans for Children's Formation, including CGS, assist us in steering this vision, and potentially join our Atrium Guild - a group of adults who support the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. If you are interested in joining this list -  please click here  so we may collect your name and email - or send it directly to  Emily Ball  at  emilynball@gmail.com .

Resources on Holiness

From the Curate | Divinely Inspired
We often say that the Bible is “divinely inspired.” But what do we mean by this?

We don’t mean that the Bible came down from heaven in one piece. Each book was written in its own time and context, and, over the course of many centuries, the people of God discerned, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that these books were holy – that, in some way, they came from God.

As a base, that’s what we acknowledge as Christians: the Scriptures find their source, ultimately, in God. In this sense, they are called his word, and, in this sense, they are “inspired.” St. Paul, writing to his protégé, Timothy, says, “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” (2 Tim. 3:16) “Inspire” is meant literally here. It comes from a Latin word meaning “breathe.” So, this verse is saying that all Scripture is “God-breathed.” In and through human words, they bear witness to and record his self-revelation, in his mighty acts, in the words and deeds of his messengers, and, above all, in Jesus Christ, his Incarnate Word, in his person, his words, and his acts. This is the basis of its authority, priority, and holiness.

The Scriptures tell the great Story, whose author and main character is God. It is the story of how God is the true King, who creates all things and, when things go wrong, works to make them right again. It is the story of his loving and restorative reign over his creation.

The wonderful thing is that, if we have eyes to see, we can find ourselves in that Story. And, if we have ears to hear, God the Holy Spirit continues to speak to us through the Scriptures.
