Since 1952, our worship has been in the high-church, Anglo-Catholic tradition. At St. Timothy's, we do what we can to maintain the ancient form of western worship by using the American Missal in conjunction with a Tridentine-style Mass, known more popularly as the Solemn High Mass. We maintained traditional Catholic worship during a time when the Roman Church was transitioning, making many liturgical changes after Vatican II. Since we are not bound by changes instituted in the Vatican councils, we stick to pre-Vatican II worship the way it was for centuries in the west. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, and our music is traditional with choir and pipe organ. We use the 1940 Hymnal, although we borrow some from the 1982 and The New English Hymnal.
We hold daily Matins (Morning Prayer) followed by a low Mass at the Shrine in the back of the church at 10:00 AM on weekdays with the exception of Fridays (Mondays during Lent). We also hold a Rosary service on Saturdays at 10:00 AM.
After Mass on Sundays, you will notice we do a sung Angelus at the back of the church. This is a tradition that was added quite a few years ago. Because we always have a meal after Mass, we regard the Angelus as a pre-lunch prayer. However, as the Angelus is not a part of the Mass, no one is obligated to take part in it, but it always has a good turnout, as it is quite lovely and powerful.
