WELCOME STEPHEN MINISTRY
If you didn’t hear, Transfiguration commissioned it’s newest ministry into the parish on Sunday, September 20 at the 8 AM Mass.
Stephen Ministers are members of our parish who have received 50+ hours of training to minister to people experiencing crisis or going through a difficult time in their life. Every week, a Stephen Minister will meet with them, privately and confidentially, to listen, care, encourage, support and reflect on Christ’s
presence in their life.
If you would like to know more, please contact us, StephenMinistry@Transfiguration.com or 770-977-1442 ext. 162.
Become an Usher for Mass, Weddings, Funerals, and other events!
the need for many helpful hands and feet to assist in keeping our church safe and the Doors to Transfiguration safely open for anyone who would like to celebrate the blessings in their lives. Please contact us if you are interested or know someone who would be a welcoming face for our parish! All are welcome!! All masses and times need your help! Email: email@example.com
How are we loving our neighbor:
Did you know that Transfiguration has a Homebound Outreach ?
Know someone who is homebound, living alone or suffering loneliness in this time of being away from community? Please reach out to us at Adult Faith Formation so that we can make sure those folks don’t fall through the cracks of life. Right now, our service can be as simple as a card in the mail or a phone call to someone who really needs it. Email :firstname.lastname@example.org with that person’s name, address, telephone number, or email. We will be happy to pair the homebound with a pen-pal!
This week we are looking for stories about how you and your family have come together through food or fun so far this quarantine. Contact the AFF Office to contribute.
In the Community, we still need your support and donations to our various ministries and outreaches, including St Vincent DePaul, Family Promise, Habitat for Humanity, Respect Life, Shelters, and More! Go to the Get Involved page to find a ministry to support.
