The Paw Paw Patch
Traditional folk song

Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Where, oh where is pretty little Susie?
Way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.

Come on, boys [or girls, or kids], let’s go find her,
Come on, boys, let’s go find her,
Come on, boys, let’s go find her,
Way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.

Pickin’ up paw-paws, puttin’ ‘em in her pockets,paw paw tree
Pickin’ up paw-paws, puttin’ ‘em in her pockets,
Pickin’ up paw-paws, puttin’ ‘em in her pockets,
Way down yonder in the paw-paw patch.

Our Church Web site is alive and well!!! 
www.sttimothy.indydio.org

Long ago in an age before recorded history began, one of our own, a man named Brent Enderly took some initiative and started something that most of us didn’t understand.  He started a web site – a “home page” for our church, and operated it for many years.  He kept the computer savvy among us “in the know”.  He was well ahead of his time, a pioneer.  Then he moved away. 

Today his legacy continues at www.sttimothy.indydio.org.  It is Ed Champa who operates the St. Tim’s Parish Website.  It does not cost St. Timothy's to have this web site.  The only cost is the maintenance and upkeep that Ed provides as a service to his parish and his church.  Folks who are looking for a new parish will often search for their new church home by looking at web sites of prospective parishes.  It is Ed's prayer that the St. Timothy's web site will be attractive enough to entice prospective parishioners to take a stronger look at our parish and maybe find a church home with us.  It is also his goal to make this web site a center of information about us - for us - and by us.  You are invited to check out our home page on a regular basis.  Our home page is alive and vibrant with the changing activities and people who make up our parish.
