Deacon Eric Bessette
After moving to Pittsford in 1993, one of the first tasks my wife Marlene and I took on was to go “church shopping”. Our first stop was Transfiguration …needless to say, it was our last stop. We immediately fell in love with the simple beauty of the Church and the warm welcoming nature of the parish community. We had found our spiritual home! “Lord, how good it is to be here.”
It has been wonderful to be a part of this faith community for almost 20 years and was a fantastic place to raise our children. Although both AJ and Danielle are launched into adult life now we were blessed anew when I was assigned here as a Deacon after being ordained in 2011. It is the people of Transfiguration that have taught me how to love and to serve the Lord. Marlene and I look forward to continuing our faith journey with all of you in our vibrant parish, where all are welcome and the fruits of the Holy Spirit are so easily seen and felt.
