Announcement: New Rector

Announcement: New Rector

The Parish of St. Timothy announces the appointment of Rev. James Duckett as our new priest. James will be starting on December 1st. James was raised in Powell River, BC with two younger sisters. Following graduation, he pursued studies at UBC, and he earned a BA in English Lit followed by a BEd in Secondary English and ESL. Shortly after graduation, he moved to Montreal, where his time teaching in a Christian private school led him to consider seminary. He took a break from teaching to return to school and after McGill’s Bachelor of Theology, he was granted a Master of Divinity from the Montreal School of Theology, a consortium of Anglican, Presbyterian, and United Churches. Returning to teaching, it wasn’t long before he left the evangelical church he had been attending for some years and began the process of discernment within the Anglican church. In the midst of discernment he also met (and married) his wife Sacha. Their daughter Eleanor was born shortly after James was ordained a deacon, and she processed in his arms with him when he was priested a year later. One year after that, Sacha got a job in Vancouver, bringing the whole family back to James’s home turf, where he served as interim priest-in-charge at St. Paul’s in Vancouver’s West End before accepting the call to St. Timothy’s.

Announcement: Interim FAQs – What's Happening with the Interim Right Now?

Announcement: Interim FAQs – What’s Happening with the Interim Right Now?

One of the important tasks of interim ministry is to ensure that the on-going life of the parish doesn’t stop. Here at St Timothy’s, that has included that we not lose momentum and energy for projects you have already started, such as the kitchen renovation and the food-based ministries for which you built it. So, some of the work the clergy and leaders have been focused on this spring has been ensuring that the ongoing life of the parish and the kitchen renovation completion has been happening. Another important task of interim ministry is getting a “pulse” of the parish and responding to what needs to be addressed before a canonical process can begin. In some parishes, that means addressing underlying issues such as unresolved conflicts or very messy administrative practices. Here at St Timothy’s, the “pulse” that became immediately clear was tiredness. For a number of reasons, many in the parish had that late winter/early spring exhaustion thing going on. And so, we decided to do our best to allow for rest through the Spring; to scale up food-based ministry slowly; to try not to add too many activities into our lives; and to make worship feel as renewing as possible. We’ll continue in this pattern through the summer; although we’ll begin getting ready for a slightly busier Fall. One of the big tasks for this fall will be some parish conversations in preparation for the Canonical Committee to be called together to write the Parish Profile. We’re anticipating scheduling at least some of them after church on Sunday morning and enjoying using the kitchen to gather around a meal while we talk.
