YOUTH SUNDAY CHANGE: The Youth Ministry will now be celebrating Youth Sunday every fourth Sunday. We hope you will join us in February as we commemorate Black History Month. Melissa Williams, Chair, Youth & Young Adult Ministries.
LENT MADNESS: The Youth and Young Adults invite you to join them in Lent Madness as we learn about 32 saints. Here’s how to participate: on the weekdays of Lent, information is posted at www.lentmadness.org about two different saints. Each pairing remains open for 24 hours as participants read about and then vote to determine which saint moves on to the next round. Sixteen saints make it to the Round of the Saintly Sixteen; eight advance to the Round of the Elate Eight; four make it to the Faithful Four; two to the Championship; and the winner is awarded the coveted Golden Halo. Brackets and details are available in the narthex, parish hall, and from Melissa or Richlyn.

SNOW AND ICE: During inclement weather, it may be necessary to cancel special events, church services on Sunday, and/or special services on Saturday because of St. Timothy’s location on two “snow emergency routes.” Consequently, when the Mayor of the District of Columbia declares a snow emergency, cars are prohibited from parking on Alabama Avenue and on Suitland Road. Therefore, when this occurs, parking is not available for parishioners, and church services will be cancelled. Please listen to the local news programs for snow emergency information or check our web site concerning the District of Columbia.
