December 20-21, 2014

All of us at Transfiguration Friary wish you a very blessed Christmas. We friars feel very fortunate to be part of this parish community and to have a share in its many ministries. Thanks so much your expressions of Christmas joy this year!

The parish office is closed during the Christmas holidays, beginning on December 24th and reopening with normal hours on January 5th. Individual staff members will be in and out as needed, however. We will check our voice mails during the Christmas break.

Next Sunday we commemorate the feast of the Holy Family. I hope that families brought together by the Christmas break can come next weekend to celebrate at Mass Christ's gift of love for us. The Catholic Church has made family life a top priority these last few months, and I'm sure that Pope Francis will have a strong message to all families this year.
