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)

Ascension of Our Lord - May 25th

Ascension means that Christ is no longer physically in the world. How is a personal relationship with One who is absent even possible?

With the Ascension and His glorification, He finished His work here and reoccupied His place next to the Father. He prays that the Father will send “Another Comforter" - (John 14:16). This occurred on Pentecost and if that event is read in the context of Jesus’ words at His last discourse, it becomes apparent that what is significant here is the personal descent of the third person of the Trinity. We see evidence of the personal nature of this descent in the way Jesus speaks about Him abiding with the disciples forever, teaching them, and reminding them of all that Christ taught them. It is precisely in His absence that Christ can now be known by all.

Bishop Alexander's Visit

His Grace 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.

Bishop Alexander is the second ruling bishop of the OCA's Bulgarian Diocese. He succeeded His Eminence, the late Archbishop Kyrill, who had overseen the diocese from 1964 to 2007.

On March 29, 2016, Bishop Alexander was elected to fill the vacant See of Dallas and the South, succeeding His Eminence, the late Dmitri. He was enthroned on June 11, 2016.

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.
