Staff Vision Statement

We, the pastoral staff of the Church of the Transfiguration, in communion with our brothers, Francis, Salvatore and Michael …

Centered in the Eucharist we believe in a Gospel model of hospitality and seek prayerfully and faithfully to welcome all persons with the dignity given them by our Creator, fostered by the Gospel of Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit.

With a deep commitment to justice and peace, we welcome all our brothers and sisters in accord with Catholic Social Teaching, marked by God’s unconditional love for all of us.

In this sacred covenant with the Diocesan Church and our Parish, we strive together to evangelize by promoting, supporting and modeling a Gospel way of life.

We ask our Faith Community to journey with us by:

  • Trusting in our ability to make wise and faith-filled decisions for the greater good of all.
  • Committing to personal and communal Spiritual Growth through Life Long Faith Formation.
  • Reverencing God and one another.
  • Witnessing to the Gospel and our Catholic faith daily with humility, simplicity and temperance.
  • Participating in our parish ministries.

We envision a parish community that is prophetic in our ministries of worship, social justice and education.
