Fundraising Concert in Support of Pikangikum Water Project
The Outreach Committee invites you to join us at a concert to be held on Saturday May 9th, at 7.30 pm here at St Timothy's. Both Kenneth Baker, who sings in St Timothy's Choir, the Canadian Opera Company and the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, and his accompanist, Edward Connell, Music Director at St Timothy's, Artistic Director of Forte - The Toronto Men's Chorus, and Concert Pianist with the National Ballet of Canada are donating their time and talents to raise money for this very important cause.
Last May we heard Dave Steeves talk about the dire situation in Pikangikum, a remote, fly-in First Nations' community in Northern Ontario. About half of its 2200 population are youth, and Pikangikum has the highest youth suicide rate in the world. Of the 450 homes in the community, 95% do not have clean water or waste water services. The goal of the Water Project is to provide a source of safe drinking water and safe sewage disposal to homes in Pikangikum by equipping the homes with cisterns and a wastewater holding tank, as well as the necessary fixtures and fittings. Training, certification and jobs would also be provided to residents of the community.
All proceeds from this concert will go to the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, specifically designated for the Pikangikum Water Project. Similar to our Stone Soup lunches, there is no fee to attend the concert, but we do ask you to consider what you normally spend on attending a concert in the community, and donate that amount, or whatever you feel would be appropriate, at the event. For more information please feel free to contact Mary Kirton or Linda Gilpin.

The Wardens and Parish Board are excited to announce the appointment of a part time Associate Priest to St. Timothy's. Due to increased activities and opportunities for young families, our new Associate Priest will support and nurture children, youth and young families. The Reverend Liska Stefko will begin her ministry with us in February. She comes to us from the Church of the Redeemer, here in Toronto, where she served as a student, Curate and Associate priest for the past five years. Reverend Liska also works part time for L'Arche in Richmond Hill. The funding for this part time position will come from funds specifically designated for ministry. Please help us welcome Liska to our church.
The Stop Community Food Centre:
Our Extra Effort for The Stop in December........
When consulted, Rekha Cherian, Food Bank Coordinator emailed "the two items we need the most are rice and beans –all kinds including brown rice, lentils, black beans, red kidney beans and canned beans. Alternative dairy such as soy milk and almond milk in tetra packs would also be great". Cartons will be available in the narthex and outside the office from December 7th to December 21st to receive your donations to support this outstanding organization.
