We are in the process of purchasing a new telephone system. Installation will be scheduled as soon as possible. Voice messages can be left on our main telephone numbers for the Parish Office, Transfiguration School or School of Religion and Frassati Catholic Academy. We encourage you, however, to call our offices during operating hours so that one of our staff may personally handle your call. Email communication is encouraged.
"To Teach Who Christ Is" Capital Stewardship Campaign
We have received pledges of $619,813 towards our goal or $1,015,000 for the To Teach Who Christ Is Campaign. 60% of the funds raised will be returned to the parish for use as needed - for education, church improvements, youth programs and community outreach. Are you one of the 249 families that have returned a pledge card? If so, we thank you; otherwise prayerfully consider what your participation can be - Equal Sacrifice, Not Equal Gifts. Return your pledge card in the envelope with our address on it or bring it to church with you next week. If you have not received a pledge card, please contact our office or request one at church.

Mill Street Parking Regulations are in effect!
School is in session. Do not park on the school side of Mill Street between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm on school days. Your vehicle will be ticketed. We also request that vehicles park in the church parking lot when dropping off or picking up your student athletes. Parking in front of the Parish Life Center entrance causes dangerous conditions for vehicles exiting through the driveway due to limited visibility. Maintain reduced speed when entering the area and be observant of pedestrians. Finally, overnight parking in our parking lots is prohibited in order to afford our maintenance staff the opportuntiy to clear snow during inclement weather. Your vehicle will be towed.
Deacon Marion Omiatek Scholarship Donations can be given at the Parish Office or online at GiveCentral.org at any time. Your donation helps cover the cost of tuition for qualified families.
