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)

Welcome to Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church
   
The Mission of the Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all [things that He has] commanded” so that all people may be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.
 
A Note About Holy Communion - The Eucharist is served to members of the Orthodox Church who have made proper preparation through prayer, fasting and recent confession and who are at peace with their neighbors. If you have any questions, please see Father Patrick after the Liturgy.

The Protection of the Theotokos - October 1


The Protection of the Mother of God is one of the most beloved feast days on the Orthodox calendar. This feast celebrates the appearance of the Theotokos in the 10th century. A group of people saw the Mother of God during a vigil in the church where her relics were kept. The Theotokos knelt down in prayer in the center of the church, her face washed in tears. She took her veil off and spread it over the people as a sign of protection.

At this time, the people of the city were being threatened by a barbarian invasion. After her appearance, they were spared from bloodshed and suffering. The feast of the Protection of the Most-Holy Theotokos is celebrated on October 1st.

Troparion:
Today the faithful celebrate the Feast with joy illumined by your coming, O Mother of God. Beholding your pure image we fervently cry to you: “Encompass us beneath the precious veil of your protection; deliver us from every form of evil by entreating Christ, your Son and our God that He may save our souls”.
   

Haven House Back to School Drive :

Thanks to everyone who brought in items for Haven House's Back to School event! Our collection was extensive, and barely fit in one vehicle to take over.

The items were all blessed and prayed over before being dropped off for the event. Please continue to pray for the students who will be using the items as the school year begins!

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.
