In response to many inquiries, we are pleased to announce that in addition to our traditional envelope giving, there will be an alternative method of contributing to Transfiguration Church via online. If you are more comfortable using the envelope system, then please continue to do so. We are pleased that this system works so well for us. However, for those of you who wish to contribute online we have enlisted ParishPay, an experienced provider of electronic giving solutions in the U.S. to Catholic parishes, to assist in our regular collections. At no cost to you, the ParishPay service provides the ability to make your contributions online from your checking, savings or credit card accounts. It is a totally secure online site, and can be easily accessed by you at ParishPay.com. Detailed information is available at the rear of the church, in the church offices, online, or by calling 1-866-PARISH1 (727-4741). Thank you for your continued support.
We invite all who are interested in becoming part of a parish welcoming committee to call the priory office (631-1672) and leave a message for Alice Droogan. The purpose of this group is to welcome individuals and families to Transfiguration. This committee strives to make newly registered parishioners feel at home by extending personal greetings, offering information & answering questions and generally assisting the newcomers in becoming better acquainted with the people and activities at Transfiguration. This is an important step on our journey toward “Making All Things New”.
