A parish in the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina


“By adoration we mean the worship of the Triune God in spirit and truth. We worship God with our body, mind and spirit, and seek him in the sacraments – Christ’s gifts to the Church. The core of our adoration is the continual offering of the most Holy Eucharist, commonly called the Mass. Daily prayer and the constant celebration of the Holy Eucharist is the heartbeat and life of St Timothy’s.”

– Fr. Steve Rice, Rector


How We Worship

Explanations on our style of worship

We often times use the phrase 'lex orandi, lex credeni,' which is a shortened Latin phrase that means how one prays dictates what one believes. When people ask what we believe as Episcopalians, we invite them to see how we pray.


High Mass

High Mass explanation and special services

St. Timothy’s is unique in that we offer a High Mass every Sunday at 11am and celebrate all of the major feasts in the church "Kalendar." This mass is characterized by ancient ceremonial, liberal use of incense, chant, and movement that emphasizes the mystery of God and the beatific vision of heaven.



Choirs, Organ Restoration, Early Childhood Music, & More

"He who sings, prays twice." This axiom from St. Augustine lays the foundation for our approach to music. Learn more about our musical philosophy, choirs, and programs for children.

The Order of Alcuin

Our Community of Altar Servers

The Order of Alcuin is a community of altar servers (children, youth, and adults) who agree to live and serve under a common way or ‘rule’ of life. The word ‘order’ means we agree to do certain things together and individually that give shape or order to our lives.
