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)

Holy Apostles Peter and Paul


June 29, is the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. Shown together on this icon, Saint Peter and Saint Paul, became Apostles in different ways.

Peter was chosen by Christ, and was with Him during His earthly ministry. Paul, who was a terrible persecutor of Christians, was converted to Christianity later.

Both sealed with their blood the testimony of their faith. Peter was crucified, head downward in Rome on June 29th. On that same day, Paul was beheaded also in Rome. Their martyrdom occured in the year 67 A.D. during the persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Nero. Saint Peter who was crucified on the cross as was Jesus, chose to be crucified upside down, because he felt unworthy to share the same manner of death as Christ.

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.
