The Diocese of El Camino Real

St. Timothy's is part of the Diocese of El Camino Real. Several members of the parish serve as elected or appointed officers within the diocese. The Diocese of El Camino Real stretches from just south of San Francisco to just north of Santa Barbara. El Camino Real, named not for a city or state but after the Spanish colonial road from Mexico City to Oregon, is a diocese of 56 congregations. Our Bishop is the Rt. Rev. Lucinda Ashby.

The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church is a Christian denomination with a rich Catholic and Protestant heritage. We believe in a God of creation, redemption, and constant presence and love. We believe that God's love and grace, which belong to all people without exception, are expressed through the Church, which is the Body of Christ. Our faith is not based on anticipated rewards or punishment, but on a free commitment of our will to do God's will.
