Planning Ahead

Clergy in the Episcopal Church are concerned with the pastoral needs of its member both in life and death as the Church seeks to witness to the truth of the Gospel and form and guide us in the way of Christiam faith. Our Book of Common Prayer instructs us, when possible, to prepare in advance for the reality of death.

The minister of the Congregation is directed to instruct the people, from time to time, about the duty of Christian parents to make prudent provision for the well-being of their families, and of all persons to make wills, while they are in health, arranging for the disposal of their temporal goods, not neglecting, if they are able, to leave bequests for religious and charitable uses (445).

Please feel free to contact St. Timothy's clergy or office staff for more information.
