We know the logistics of evenings can be tricky, especially for families, so
our aim is to offer you a one-stop shop that meets everyone’s needs…

Spanish Track: Fr. Gerardo Ceballos

All are welcome to join in the main session for Steve's talks. For those who may be more comfortable communicating in Spanish, Fr. Gerardo Ceballos will offer talks on the same themes during the main session Monday and Tuesday evenings. These lively sessions also will include music.

Born in Mexico, Father Gerardo joined the Archdiocese of Atlanta in July 2006. Though only ordained a priest in June 2016, his knowledge and understanding far exceed his years of priesthood. His sincere heart for people and dynamic message both inspire and offer a rich depth. Transfiguration warmly welcomes him home, remembering the two years he spent with us as a seminarian. He currently serves as a parochial vicar at St. Michael in Gainesville, GA.

Monday & Tuesday, 7:15-8:30 p.m., Bishop Hall

Kids

This event is one that truly includes people of all ages.

Nursery:
For young children aged 6 months to 4 years/pre-k,
please click here for details on how our Nursery works. Space is limited. Advance registration is required and is now closed.

The Nursery is presently full for Sunday evening and has gone to a WAIT LIST for that evening. However, please feel free to bring your little ones to the concert if need be just like at Mass. You can always step out for a moment if they become too fussy or need a break!

The pre-k children will enjoy a modified version of the Kids' Track programming the elementary children will be experiencing.

If you have other options for your children – say family in town – you might consider going that direction to leave spaces for those who don’t. We’re all about the kindness of the community, right? Contact Karla Colman with questions, to see if any slots have opened since registration closed, or to update a registration you've already submitted.

Sunday, 6:00-8:15 p.m., Nursery
Monday & Tuesday, 9:30-11:45 a.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m., Nursery

Kids' Track:
For children in Kindergarten through 5th grade,
we will have a Kids’ Track at the Family Life Center Monday and Tuesday evenings. (They are welcome to join us for the concert Sunday night.) The programming will be uplifting, fun, child-appropriate and reflect the same themes Steve will be addressing in the main session. It’s a great way for you and the kids to get spiritually fed at the same time. 

Advance registration for the Kids’ Track is required and is now closed. You will receive additional details, including sign-in/out procedures once you sign up. Contact Sheila Murray with questions, to see if any slots have opened since registration closed, or to update a registration you've already submitted.

Monday & Tuesday, 7:00-8:30 p.m., Family Life Center

Older Children:
Middle and high schoolers,

join us in the Sanctuary for the main session! Steve is engaging for people of all ages, has spent many years in youth ministry, and will have a message prepared to move both teens and adults. Plus, it might be a great conversation starter!

Daytime Enrichment Sessions

For those who might like to spend a little more time with the topics Steve presents, we'll offer morning sessions Monday and Tuesday to flesh out the previous night's content without repeating it. We'll have speakers and reflection time designed to draw you deeper into those ideas and how they touch your unique faith walk.

Monday, 9:45-11:30 a.m., Family Life Center:
Deepening My Relationship with God through Prayer

  • Featured speakers Rod Voss, Dale Molnar and Maureen Ingalls will guide us in experiencing three unique forms of prayer (Audio Divina, Visio Divina and Lectio Divina) and share how they have deepened their prayer lives.
  • Spanish track available in Adult Lounge
Tuesday, 9:45-11:30 a.m., Family Life Center:
Where Have I Seen God Working in My Life?
  • Featured speakers Msgr. Pat Bishop and Ruth Elsbree will share moving stories of God’s unmistakable work in their lives to help inspire us to see His presence in our own journeys.
  • Spanish track available in Adult Lounge

Join us for one morning or both!
