Welcome to Our
Catholic Church

We deliberately put the words “Catholic” in this opening welcome.  At Transfiguration, we are Catholic.  We’re not ashamed of it; in fact, we’re very excited about it!  At Transfiguration, we believe, celebrate, and proclaim the fullness of the Catholic Faith that has been given to the Church down through the centuries.
