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
   
Annual Fall Parish Picnic - Sunday, September 30
   
Our Mission:
To follow Christ’s commandment to “go therefore and make disciples of all the 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…”

Our Vision:
To be disciples of Jesus Christ who understand and embrace the Apostolic Faith in our American context, through sacramental communion with God and one another, for the life of the world.
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.
   
St Basil Orthodox Church Relief Fund, Wilmington, NC

Fr Peter will also be coordinating with IOCC and other relief agencies in the coming days, but their work is necessarily focused on the wider Wilmington community.    Click Here To Donate
   
The Elevation of the Life-Giving Cross

The Elevation or Exaltation of the Holy Cross, is one of the Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church. Empress Helen, the mother of St Constantine the Great, found the Cross on Golgotha in 326 AD. The Cross of Christ was found with the two crosses used to crucify the thieves on either side of Jesus. The "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews" sign also lay among the three crosses.
In order to determine which one was the True Cross, a sick woman was told to kiss each cross. The woman kissed the first two crosses and nothing happened. When the ailing woman kissed the True Cross, she was immediately made well. At that time, a funeral procession was passing that way. The body of the dead man was placed on each cross, and when it was placed on the True Cross, the dead man came to life - thus the name the “Life-Giving” Cross. The Life-Giving Cross gives life not only to that man, but to each person who believes in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross, and His All-glorious three day Resurrection.

Our 2018 St Nicholas Fund

Over the last two months our St Nicholas Fund has helped a single mother with two teenage children pay her bills and avoid homelessness.

It has also provided toiletries and reading materials to an inmate in a state correctional facility who is seeking God in the Orthodox faith.

God bless you for your offering of mercy!

   

Another Successful Haven House Back to School Drive!

"Thank you to you and your parish for all of the items you donated to the
back to school drive for Haven House. We exceeded all of our goals and we could not have accomplished it without help from your church. I dropped all the items off on Wednesday and they were thrilled to see all of the donations.
Thank you so much again and have a great day."

“Souper Bowl of Caring”
  on Super Bowl Sunday:


This is a national movement to change the largest day of football into the largest day of caring, by giving 100% of proceeds to charity.

Once again, thank you for your overwhelming generosity in supporting the Wrenn House in Raleigh. We even surpassed last year's huge donation amount!

      2017 Angel Giving Tree Thank You!      

Once again, the parishioners of Holy Transfiguration showed their enthusiasm and generous support of the families of Wake County in our 2017 Christmas Ministry Project!

After church on Sunday, December 10th, we delivered your many Christmas gifts to the four needy families which our church had sponsored. These recipient families were so overwhelmed and grateful for our kindness...many were speechless. Many hugs were exchanged!

I just wish all of our parishioners could have seen the warmth and gratitude these families showed toward our parish, as we brought your gifts into their homes.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU … AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES WITH A JOYOUS NATIVITY!
   
Another Successful SOCKTOBER!
I was naked and you clothed me (Matt 25:36)

SOCKTOBER!! We'd like to thank all our brothers and sisters at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church for helping us make SOCKTOBER another success in helping others.

We delivered to our
partner agencies Haven House, Tammy Lynn Center, Families Together, and Wake County Women's Center with your donations. We are already looking forward to our next project! God bless and keep you all.
