Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Advent and Christmas


Our Advent Theme at Transfiguration and St Catherine of Siena this year is  "Strengthen the Vine by Welcoming Emmanuel'.  Join us at church in celebrating the Advent and Christmas season with Emmanuel! We invite you to our special gatherings and services filled with joy, hope, and the spirit of togetherness. Let's come together to embrace the true meaning of this wonderful time of year by strengthing our relationship with Jesus and welcoming him into our hearts.

Advent begins the weekend of December 2-3 and concludes on the weekend of December 23-24.   We hope that you will be able to take advantage of the many great opportunities of the Advent season offered by both parishes.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to easily access our Livestream, and all of the other wonderful content lovingly prepared for you!
