CHILDREN, TEENS & ADULTS GROWING IN FAITH

Welcome to Transfiguration Parish Religious Education Program; also known as OUR GREAT JOURNEY! We are dedicated to providing quality programs based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Scripture and Church Tradition.
We offer opportunities to learn more about our Catholic faith for 3 year olds to adults. Click the Information for Parents expander for uploaded calendar, handbook, prayers and words of the week.

We are very excited to announce some BIG improvements to Religious Education/ Faith Formation. WE WILL NO  LONGER BE PREP OR PEEP... BUT "OUR GREAT JOURNEY." We are all on a journey to learn about God, our Catholic Faith and how we are to live His love. Read more...

January 13 - Baptism

the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit… and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.

(This sacrament is called Baptism, after the central rite by which it is carried out: to baptize (Greek baptizein) means to "plunge" or "immerse".)

Thank you to Monday 1st Grade for creating and producing this week's video. Awesome job!
