Fort Worth, Texas is the city where the West begins and where our heritage is an important part of who we are. At St. Timothy's we value tradition, too, and invite you to join friendly people worshiping God in a reverent, meaningful and historic manner every Sunday."
Fr. Christopher C. Stainbrook ~ Former Pastor

Mission Statement:

St.Timothy's Catholic Church is an Ordinariate Catholic Community made up of Christians whose purpose is to worship and glorify God, spread His Holy Gospel, and maintain the Holy Catholic and Apostlic Faith as once delivered to the saints.

As of April 23, 2017 we moved to the Chapel at the Fort Worth Diocese Catholic Center. We have access to the Chapel, as well as support facilities, from 8:00am to 2:00pm every Sunday. On Holy Days of Obligation (other than Sunday's) we may use it at 7:00pm.  The address is 800 W. Loop 820 S. This is approximately 3/4 of a mile south of White Settlement Rd. and on the west side of Loop 820. 
~  Our Sunday Mass will begin at 10:30AM. ~

On behalf of the Parish Council and the people of St. Timothy's Catholic Church, we offer a huge thank you to the clergy, staff, and the people of St. Mary of the Assumption for being our host parish since January of 2012. We realize our journey has been long and their generosity and understanding is greatly appreciated by us all. With the support of St. Mary's and the Diocese of Fort Worth, especially Bishop Michael Olson, we have been able to continue our strong catholic traditions in a most beautiful setting.
May God bless St. Mary of the Assumption for all your help.

Carl McNiel - Interim Parish Administrator
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
St. Timothy's needs all our support and we will continue to
move forward in faith ... with your help.

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.
