Prayer of Faithful

We pray to the Lord for the repose of the souls of the law enforcement officers in Dallas who were murdered in the line of duty, for their families, and for all others who were injured in this attack, that God might grant them peace and solace.

Fr. Stainbrook reassigned to St. John Vianney, Cleburne, Texas

My dear parishioners and friends:
Sunday, July 3rd, 2016

It was during the first week of July, 1994, that I was assigned to be the Vicar of the then St. Timothy's Episcopal Church. Now, twenty two years later, in the first week of July 2016, I am writing to let you know that I have been asked by His Excellency, Bishop Lopes, to accept the assignment as Parochial Administrator (Pastor) at St. John Vianney Church (Cleburne) full time, beginning September 1st.

Obedience is the hallmark of a Catholic priest, and I will endeavor to do my best in my new assignment, as I have always tried to do here for you at St. Timothy's.

What a remarkable congregation you are! What a joy it has been for me to be your priest! We have shared a truly special two decades (and two years!) together -- growing more deeply in the Catholic faith and, indeed, entering the Catholic Church as a body on January 1st, 2012. The Book of Ecclesiastes tells us, however:  "For everything, there is a Season"  It is now the Season for a new chapter to begin in the life of this community.

I will remain as your Pastor throughout the summer, so this is not by any means my "goodbye" to you! Beginning in September, several priests will share pastoral care here - including our old friends Fr. Chuck Hough, Fr. Tom Kennedy and Fr. John Cornelius.
Bishop Lopes has a long term strategic plan for St. Timothy's which will begin in 2017 (about which he will share with the congregation at a later time).  Please be assured of the Bishop's warmest affection for this unique parish.

I look forward to our coming final weeks together during the months of July and August, and will always be grateful for the privilege and honor of serving as your priest and friend.

Faithfully and fondly,

Fr. Christopher C. Stainbrook
Welcome Bishop Steven J. Lopes
The Ordination, broadcast worldwide on EWTN from the Co-cathedral of the Sacred Heart (the original cathedral is in the old port city of Galveston), began with the procession of scores of diocesan and visiting priests and deacons, followed by a host of Ordinariate priests from around North America. Six cardinals, along with the many bishops and archbishops settled in the apse of the magnificent cathedral sanctuary along with the three Ordinaries, Monsignors Steenson, Newton, and Entwistle of, respectively, North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
St. Timothy's needs all our support and we will continue to
move forward in faith ... with your help.
