Vestry Notes




May 2011
In 2009, St. Timothy's parish was blessed with the arrival of the Sworh family from Liberia with the help of some other local parishes. What an amazing gift from God the addition of these incredible spirits have brought to St. Timothy's! With the wonderous celebration of the family's newest arrival, Samuel, we have all grown in heart and mind by watching all of them grow. Such a blessing it has been to have them with us during their transition into life here in Indiana.  Life is full of change, and God has called upon Kormosa and the children to spend time in Pennsylvania with Kormosa's Uncle.  They will be moving at the end of the month of May.  Please help us in honoring the fantastic time that we have been able to share with the Sworh family and help send them off with the love and gratitude that God's has bestowed upon our family here at St. Timothy's.  We will miss you all so very much! Good luck in your travels!!
