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)

St John the Baptist and Forerunner of Christ

Beheading of St John the Baptist

On August 29th, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Beheading of Saint John the Baptist and Forerunner of Christ. Because he baptized Christ, he is the patron saint of godparents. He is also known for the holiness of his life, for the strictness of asceticism and strong desire to do justice and reach the Kingdom of God. The people of the Church named him the angel in human body and he is sometimes depicted with wings. St John is the cousin of Christ through his mother St Elizabeth.

He lived in prayer in a desert cave from childhood, fasting and meditating on the commandments of God. He ate wild honey and locusts and never had an alcoholic drink. He was beheaded by Herod in the first century to satisfy the request of Herod's stepdaughter and wife.

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.
