Seder Meal
Every Wednesday
Saturday, March 10, 6:30 p.m., Bishop Hall
This is an IDEAL family faith experience! Our present day celebration of the Eucharist is rooted in this Jewish Passover family meal. A better understanding of the Jewish Seder will provide a better understanding of our Sunday Mass. This is a joyful celebration complete with story telling, music, scripture, thanksgiving and good food. Advance ticket purchase is required by March 6. Tickets are available after all weekend Masses as well as in the parish office. Tickets are $10 for those over age 12; $5 for ages 6-12 and $2 for ages less than 6 years.

Blessing of Easter Foods
Holy Saturday, March 31, 12:00 p.m. in Bishop Hall
Traditionally, parishioners have brought baskets with some of the following foods to be blessed: meat, bread, water, salt, butter, eggs, and horseradish. Different ethnic groups have some variations - include whatever you like in your basket. Easter morning begins
by breaking bread, sharing the blessed water, and other blessed foods to celebrate Jesus' triumphant resurrection.

 

Refugee Welcoming Weekend
March 17 and 18
The Holy Family was once a refugee family that resettled in a new country due to persecution in their original birthplace. Today we, as Catholics, have an opportunity to practice our faith, "Welcome the Stranger", and assist other families who are fleeing their homeland due to war or persecution. We are blessed to partner with the Archdiocese to serve the refugees in our midst. Each parish family is invited to bring a household item to Mass March 17 or 18 for the refugee families being served through Catholic Charities of Atlanta's Refugee Resettlement Services. Please go to www.transfiguration.com/refugee for a list of requested items and join us as we put our faith into action.
