The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him". When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear". (Matthew 17)

The Falling Asleep of the
Most-Holy Theotokos, Aug 15


The Dormition, or falling asleep of the Theotokos, is one of the great Feasts of the Orthodox Church. It proclaims that the Theotokos has been taken by God into the heavenly kingdom of Jesus Christ, in complete fullness of her spiritual and bodily existence.

The Dormition is celebrated on August 15, and is preceded by fourteen days of strict fasting, only with the exception of the Holy Transfiguration of Christ, which is August 6. The falling asleep of the Virgin Mary is the commemoration of the death, resurrection and glorification of the Most-Holy Mother of Jesus Christ.

Archbishop Alexander's Visit

His Eminence, Archbishop Alexander is bishop of Dallas, the South and ruling bishop of the Bulgarian Diocese of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). He has also served as locum tenens of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. and the Diocese of the Midwest.

Holy Transfiguration Church Raleigh-Durham, NC is honored to have our photograph featured on the cover of the 2016 OCA Desk Calendar. The calendar’s theme is “Facing Forward As We Expand The Mission".

In the year 2000, we started a Mission church and by 2009, we were able to purchase land and our first church building. Three years later in 2012, our Mission was elevated to Full Parish Status. As we continue to expand and gain more members, we will soon outgrow our present facility.

In 2015, Holy Transfiguration Church purchased land in North Raleigh which will be the home of our future church building. The photo on the cover of the 2016 OCA Calendar shows many of our members on the day the cross was planted and the new land was blessed. We are continuing to "Expand the Mission" as many Parishes before us have done.
