The Christian Service Commission exists as a model and resource of Catholic Social Teaching to enable the entire parish community to put the social teaching of the Church into action. The Commission empowers the members of the parish to fulfill the Church's mission of love, justice, freedom and peace by communally responding, in an organized way, to societal and individual needs. The Commission creates and/or promotes programs which strive to address human needs and achieve justice whether locally or in the broader communities of Vicariate, Archdiocese, state, nation and world.
The Franciscan Outreach Program, South Oakland Shelter, Crossroads, St. Pat’s Senior Center, the Giving Tree, Parish Health Fair, Visiting Eucharistic Ministers, local Nursing Home Programs and Parish Social Events are among a few of the projects the Christian Service Commission sponsors or helps with.
The Christian Service Commission welcomes any members of the Church of the Transfiguration Parish who are willing to extend their time, talent and treasure for the common good of the Community. We meet monthly.
