Church of the Transfiguration
WEEKEND MASS SIGN-UP
Please click on the link below
August 2nd is the Franciscan Feast of the Portiuncula. This feast celebrates a chapel in Assisi that St. Francis loved: it was a church he rebuilt, where the Order began, where he received St. Clare, where he died. A plenary indulgence has been attached to visiting the church (under the usual conditions: confession, communion, prayer for the Pope) and it has been extended to any Franciscan church on this day.

Dear Mike, Team Members, and Transfiguration Parish,
I am writing to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude for sponsoring Sunday, 7-19-20 at Crossroads Soup Kitchen.We are so very grateful for your commitment to feed hungry people, to serve impoverished people, and to support Crossroads’ efforts to ensure that this happened on July 19, 2020!
On Sunday, July 19:…
The number of meals served on 7-19-20 was 272.This number is based on number of meal tickets plus a separate system of counting, and continued serving to latecomers until we departed. They did come when the rain slowed down!
For us at Crossroads, it was a joy to work with you and your team. Also, the wonderful people we serve, needed you, and you came through for them mightily. Thank you!
We hope you will be able to share our message of gratitude and appreciation with your team members and everyone at Transfiguration Parish.
Also, with all the gratitude in our hearts we hope and pray that you will be able to sign-up to sponsor a Sunday meal in 2021.
At the same time, we pray that you and your families and everyone at Transfiguration Parish are healthy and doing as well as possible during the Covid-19 pandemic. Please count on our continued support and friendship and know that during this time of social distancing our connections and togetherness with you remain strong!
