Welcome to Our Great Journey


Welcome to Transfiguration Parish Religious Education Program; also known as OUR GREAT JOURNEY! We are dedicated to providing quality programs based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Scripture and Church Tradition. We offer opportunities to learn more about our Catholic faith for 3 year olds to adults. Click the Information for Parents button for uploaded calendar, handbook, prayers and words of the week.

We are all on a journey to learn about God, our Catholic Faith and how we are to live His love. Click HERE to learn more about our programs.

We are hoping and praying that it will be safe and we can gather together again beginning August 16! If we cannot, we are planning to have a Virtual Great Journey. If you are able to register early, it is a big help with ordering textbooks, supplies and organizing classes. For those who can pay tuition, we are grateful. If it is more convenient to do a payment plan or you need tuition assistance, please register and also submit the Payment Plan Tuition Assistance (PPTA)  form. We can’t wait to see EVERYONE! Any questions, just let us know.
