Madness. The week was sensational!!! Fr. Dan
O’Connell did an excellent job with his presentation, and
many of the parents in attendance had nothing but
positive things to say about his message. I’m sure the
kids are still feeding off their parent’s energy. Pam
Stenzil presented to a packed church last Sunday, and so
far comments have been extremely positive. By the way,
driving back to the airport, Pam commented on the
behavior and attitude of our students and she was very
impressed. I am, of course, so very proud of our high
school students. Finally, LIFTED HIGHER worship and
praise service was fantastic!! We hope to have the Lift

                                                SECOND SUNDAY OF LENT

         “A Message From Our Pastor”
Dear friends-
    I would ask you to consider two things this week.
    First off, we are hosting the follow up sessions to our
parish pulse program that was held last year. A speaker
from our Parish Council will be present at the Masses this
weekend to invite you to attend, and we hope that you
can join us next Wednesday, March 11 at either the
9:30am or 7:30pm session. We would like to use this
opportunity to give you an update on where we are as a
parish and our hopes for our future growth.
    This weekend begins the Catholic Appeal for 2009.
Each year we are asked to help fund the charitable works
of the Archdiocese as well as to assist the Cardinal with
the administration of the Archdiocese.
    Obviously, it is difficult to ask for financial assistance
in this very difficult economy. Some who have given in
the past will not be able to give this year because of lost
jobs or diminished retirement or investment income.
    On the other side of the coin, when the economy is
bad, that is the time when charities are called upon to
respond time and time again. For many people, the
Church becomes their only safety net, their only refuge in
times of distress.
    Those of you who have been able to give to the
Appeal in the past should have received materials in the
mail. If you can help again this year, that would be
    Others may not be able to give as much, but whatever
you can do is greatly appreciated.
    Last year, about 240 people from our parish
contributed. This year, if each parish member who did
not contribute last year could contribute even $50 or
$100—that is one or two dollars per week for a year—we
could reach our parish goal and do a tremendous amount
of good for others.
    There are Appeal materials in the benches for those
who need them. If you use these envelopes, please note
that you are a member of St. Timothy parish.
    Part of the notion of tithing is to place our trust in
God, and that if we make a sacrificial gift, it is a sign that
we trust that the Lord will watch over us and help us with
our needs. One of the three “pillars” of Lent, in addition
to prayer and fasting, is almsgiving. Let us try to help
others through this Appeal so that we can continue to
help others in Jesus’ Name.
    Thank you for all you do and for considering this
special need.

                        Fr. Culloty
