Father Patrick Pulley,


Daily Scripture Readings
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
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.
Nativity Fast

O Cave, prepare yourself to receive the Mother who bears Christ within her womb. O Manger, receive the Word Who destroyed the sins of all. O Shepherds, keep watch and then bear witness to the awesome wonder. O Magi, now come and bring your gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the King.

For the Lord has appeared from a virgin Mother; yet she bowed to Him as a servant and spoke to Him within her bosom, saying: How were You conceived in me? How did You grow in me, O my God and Savior? Orthodox Church in America

2018 Angel Tree Project Thank You!

Dear Fellow Parishioners,
In a time in our world where there is much need, all of you were very generous to the families that we were supporting for the Angel Tree Project. The three families were so grateful for your wonderful generosity, saying how much they appreciated your kindness.

All the gifts were delivered by December 17, insuring a special Christmas for all. I wish all of you could have shared in getting to know the members of the families.

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!

Thank you so much again and have a great day."

From the IOCC to HTOC,
"I cannot express to you enough how vital your generous gift of support to IOCC's Hurricane Harvey Response Fund has been. As the water receded, assessments have determined that the storm damaged at least 200,000 homes and destroyed more than 12,700 others in the area. With your support, IOCC has been on the ground and responding... Thank you for your gifts and for your prayers. Together, we will help the region rebound."
