A Letter from Our Pastor

Dear Transfiguration Family,
I hope all of you are well as we enter into the fall season and rapidly approach the end of another liturgical year. The Lord blesses us in so many ways throughout the year and we are called to respond with loving gratitude, especially in the Holy Mass.
With this in mind, I would like to offer two gentle reminders. The first concerns arriving on time for Mass. Many people are coming late to Mass with some arriving during the Eucharistic prayer. This is true at daily Mass as well as on the weekend. While we all have obligations that force us to be late once in a while, we must remind ourselves of the importance of participating in the liturgy in its entirety. Our Lord is always present to us and it is important that we show our respect for Him and our parish family by being present when the celebration of Mass begins.
My second reminder concerns maintaining an atmosphere of reverence during adoration in the chapel. This should be a quiet place suitable for prayer, reflection, and solitude with the Lord. Recently, we have received numerous complaints that individuals and groups using the chapel are being noisy and disruptive. The chapel is open to all and as such, all must be respectful of its purpose and each other.
As Always, I pray that the Lord continues to bless our parish family with His abundant graces and mold us into the likeness of His Son.
