Welcome to Our Great Journey
CHILDREN, TEENS & ADULTS GROWING IN FAITH
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.

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.
Many adjustments have been made since the pandemic. Preschool and Kindergarten classes receive weekly digital lessons and a monthly Zoom class. Families forming Disciples is for families with children in Grades K – 12 and gather virtually twice a month, with one mission activity a month. ChrisTeen (Grades 6-12) have the option to meet on-site twice a month or meet virtually. OCI students are meeting weekly virtually. 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.

Religious Ed tuition at the parish covers less than 1/3 of Religious Ed expenses. Those expenses do not include any cost for facilities, such as maintenance or HVAC, or most of the equipment that is used. The costs are mostly to pay for staff that are still needed to develop and guide content plus administrative functions; i.e. registration, accounting, communications. Our tuition is $85 for those who register before August 15 $8.50 per child, per month.
Nevertheless, it has always been our policy that Religious Education is available to all, regardless of ability to pay. The payment plan/tuition assistance form (PPTA) is available on the website, you can download and submit to Joyce, firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also mindful and hopeful as we redesign that learning can transition to hybrid and fully on-site learning as soon as is safely possible.
