The Transfiguration celebrates Christ's revelation of His glory to His disciples as recorded in the gospels. It is also a day on which the first fruits (grapes, apples, etc. are blessed).
This Sunday, we will have something of a transfiguration in the parish as an entire family is baptized.
At 8:30, the Jones family (Larry, Jennifer, Noah, Caleb, Samuel and Elisabeth) will be received into union with Christ through Baptism in the Holy Orthodox Church. You are encouraged to come and share in this joyous event!
