We, the Church of the Diocese of Timmins, are a community of faith which strives to bring all people closer to the Risen Christ, and to meet their needs in these challenging times. We are invited to invent new ways of being Church today. The fact that “Though many we are one body” (Rm. 12:4) means that we recognize the dignity, uniqueness, equality and co-responsibility of all persons.
