Fr. Jeff will be on retreat from Sunday afternoon, October 25 until Saturday, October 31.
We are limited as to the number of people who can be in the church for mass. We estimated earlier the number to be 75, but that only works with certain seating arrangement. The actual number is approximately 60-65. We are able to seat 50 more in the hall, where the mass is livestreamed and communion will be distributed. In order to plan, we do ask people to sign up before hand and let us know you will be coming. We appreciate your cooperation. You can use this sign up.
Thanks for your contribution to the CSA!
Our parish goal this year is $38,102. So far $20,557 has been pledged. Any shortfall has to be made up through parish savings.

An estimated 38 percent of Americans are eligible to give blood or platelets, but of those, less than 10 percent actually donate each year. If you are healthy and eligible, please come out to donate. Most donations take about an hour, so book your appointment, roll up your sleeve and become a part of the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross and the Church of Transfiguration. If you don't know if you're eligible, show up to find out. And if you can't donate blood, we would love to have you as a volunteer at our drive.
Drive Times: 9 am to 3 pm
