A prayer for “Renew My Church”
Lord Jesus, you speak to us today,
as you spoke to holy men and women
who have gone before us.
In every age and in our own time,
you call to us and say: Renew My Church.
Pour out the gift of your Holy Spirit upon us,
and so enable us
to hear you clearly
to listen to each other attentively
to imagine our future boldly
to discern your direction wisely
to persevere in your holy will courageously
to stay together in charity
to surrender our own plans readily
to embrace the greater good
to hand on your gifts to future generations.
May we remain in the holy company of
the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and all the saints.
May their example and presence
inspire us with patient confidence
in the work of your grace.
We ask this of you who live and reign
with the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
forever and ever. Amen

Transfiguration To Teach Who Christ Is
Fellow Parishioners, as co chairs of Phase II of the TTWIC, we feel that it is appropriate and timely to provide a status of the Parish's progress. First and foremost, we again want to say THANK YOU to all those who have pledged and worked diligently with us to insure the Parish's future. Currently, the Parish's pledges exceed $1.3 million dollars. Many projects have been completed, most notably the significant renovation of our worship space. We cannot forget all that was accomplished prior to this: lighting in Parish Life Center, telecommunications in parish office and school and parking lot improvements to name a few. All of these provide the infrastructure to improve the ways we "Teach Who Christ Is". Also, one of the ongoing Parish priorities was and is the reduction of Parish debt. We are moving forward on this priority, which of course depends upon everyone following thru on your pledges. Continuing to reduce our debt is key to providing for the future of Transfiguration. Naturally, as our debt decreases, we can shift focus to the next priority improvements to continue teaching Christ's message.
