Welcome Fr Brian McNavish
I am pleased to announce that the Archdiocese has assigned a new parochial vicar to Transfiguration. Rev. Brian McNavish was ordained on June 16. Transfiguration will be his first assignment as a priest.
Fr. Brian was born in Pittsburgh, PA and grew up in Woodstock, GA. He attended Kennesaw State University, studying journalism, before transferring to St. Joseph Seminary College in Louisiana. He did his post-graduate studies at Mundelein Seminary in Chicago, completed hospital chaplaincy training at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, and has worked to develop a proficiency to minister in Spanish.
May God bless you, Fr. Brian's first mass at Transfiguration will be Saturday, June 30 at 5:00 p.m. followed by a reception in Bishop Hall. Please come give him a great Transfiguration welcome. I am excited to have him here and I am sure he will be a great addition to our parish family.
Fr. Fernando Molina-Restrepo

Together, we grow the Kingdom of God.
Every human has been made in God's image. God dwells within us. Our purpose is to build His kingdom on earth until we are able to share in His glory in the kingdom of heaven.
Imagine the mustard seed in today's gospel as a portion of God's kingdom that lives within us. We must nurture and nourish the seed for it to grow and thrive. We do this through prayer, worship, and being a follower of Christ. But we must also nurture and nourish the seeds of others by living the kind of life Jesus taught: loving our neighbors, helping those in need, feeding the hungry, obeying the commandments, and so on. This is often more difficult if we let the weeds of selfishness, greed, and apathy - just to name a few - choke out our good intentions.
What can we do this week to fertilize that little seed both in ourselves and in others? If we care for them, those seeds will grow into huge plants with branches reaching toward the sky. In the same way, our little portion of God's kingdom will spread through out the world and lead us to our heavenly home.
