Transitioning to a new Rector
- February 13th, 2018:
We welcomed Fr. Remer to St. Timothy’s Church at our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on February 13th. His first day of services was Ash Wednesday when he celebrated 4 services for both our parish family and the St. Timothy’s School Middle School classes. Sunday, February 18th we celebrated his first set of Sunday services with us.
Please join us as Fr. Remer leads Stations of The Cross every Wednesday evening in Lent at 6:00 pm then stay for dinner and discussion at our annual Lenten Soup Suppers beginning at 6:30 pm.

It is with great honor the Vestry of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church Raleigh, North Carolina, announces the calling of the Reverend Doug E. Remer as Interim Rector. After spending a weekend with Fr. Remer and his wife, Sterling, the Vestry voted unanimously to call Fr. Remer to St. Timothy’s to lead us during this time of transition and discernment.
A graduate of Rutgers College and The General Theological Seminary, Fr. Remer is a retired priest who, during his almost forty years of pre-retirement ministry, served in the Diocese of North Carolina at parishes in Raleigh and Tarboro, as well as parishes in Utica, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; and Tampa, Florida. He has also served as a priest at two parishes with Episcopal schools. More recently, he has served as an Interim Rector in North Carolina parishes located in Asheboro and Cashiers.
In his letter to our parish expressing his interest, Fr. Remer stated he never views his work as an Interim Rector as that of imposing his own will on the parish, but, rather, assisting the parish to discern God’s will for its future ministry and witness.
Having had the pleasure of spending time with Fr. Remer over the last two weekends, I can tell you I feel a sense of relief, thankfulness, excitement, and hope for the future of St. Timothy’s Church and School.
Fr. Remer will be joining us on February 13, 2018, for our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. He will begin conducting services on Ash Wednesday. I am personally thrilled that you all will have the opportunity to meet him soon.
Above is a family photo taken at the recent Christening of his granddaughter, Josephine. We want to extend a warm and loving welcome the Fr. Remer and his entire family.
May God continue to bless St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church and School!

Celebration Scheduled – As we move toward the final Sunday where we will celebrate the Holy Sacrament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ together, with the James Family, we should find ourselves with grateful and full hearts. The 25-year-long ministry to the church and the school provided by Father James and the support of our ministries by his family will long be remembered as a treasured blessing by this parish family. As we approach Sunday, January 21st reflect on the abundance of rich memories and faithful worship provided by the James family and consider contributing to a gift as we say farewell. We hope the entire parish and school community will join together Sunday, January 21st for one service at 9:30 am. Following the service we will take time to celebrate and honor the ministry of the James family to our cherished St. Timothy’s Church and School and to say our heartfelt thank you’s and finally our warm goodbyes.
