First Annual Transfiguration Oktoberfest - Thank you!
We wish to thank everyone that participated in the planning and exectuion of the first social event of our 175th Anniversary year. Hours of planning were put forth by the event chairs: Mark and Camie Kwasigroch and 175th Anniversary Committee members: Fr. Ron Gollatz, Bill Hughes, Dave Jakubek, Monica Glavey, Mary Gebelhoff, Jim and Mary Ann Fijalkiewicz (to name a few). The delicious food was prepared by the Knights of Columbus. We had many volunteers for admissions, ticket sales, food and beverage service, setup, cleanup and raffles. A special thanks goes out to our area businesses and parishioners that donated the wonderful items for the raffles. The day would not have been successful without participation by everyone - especially those that came to enjoy the music, food, games and fun!

175th Anniversary  
We continue our planning for the monthly activities which began in August of 2015 and end in August of 2016. We will kicked off the year with Prayer: August 9 Bishop Rassas presided at the 9 am mass to begin the anniversary year. Oktoberfest took place on September 19. We are also planning service and outreach activities as well as Madrigal Performances with dinner, Mardi Gras, other masses at various locations, picnics and participation in area parades on Memorial Day and July 4. We need your participation in the planning and success of our activities. Our next planning meeting is Tuesday, September 29 at 7:30 pm in the Parish Office Meeting rooms. Anyone that would have historical information and pictures to please contact us. Our history committee would love to speak with you. Please contact Kathie at the Parish Office 847-526-2400 x245.

"To Teach Who Christ Is" Campaign Minimize

In October, 2013 the Archdiocese of Chicago launched the "To Teach Who Christ Is" Capital Campaign. Transfiguration Parish goal is to reach $1,015,000 over a 3 year pledge period. 60% of all monies collected will be for use in our parish.  A survey taken at that time gave a number of areas to target for the use of those funds:  Church building improvements; Youth and Young Adult Ministry development and Community Outreach.  We have already received and used some of the funds for a new telephone system.  The funds that remain with the Archdiocese will be used for education in all areas: Schools, Religious Education, RCIA, Children's Liturgy of the Word, Youth programs and adult formation.  As of the end of April, 2015, we have recieved pledges from 305 parishioners for a total of $665,714. For those who have made a pledge, we thank you. If not, please prayerfully considered how you can help with this campaign. Information regarding the campaign and pledge cards can be obtained from the Parish Office. Eveyone's gifts will not be equal, but parish life and service depends on equal sacrifice. In a few years we will celebrate 175 years as a family of faith.  This is a huge opportunity.  It means we are relying on all those who have been part of our parish before us.  Our responsibility is to provide a continuation of ministry, outreach and prayer for the people who will come to Transfiguration in the future.
