Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church is offering a new restoration and recovery ministry for those who have, or consider themselves to have, a life-debilitating issue. These issues may be interfering with your life and may result in, or be the result of, a habitual sin which needs healing in order for you to live your life in Christ. They can range from anxiety or panic disorders, eating disorders, checking internet or social media to the point of shutting out your family, or to drug or alcohol addiction.
Open to individuals and couples, meetings will be held bi-monthly on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm in the church. We are studying the book “Truly Human: Recovering Your Humanity in a Broken World” by Kevin Scherer, which is available in our bookstore. Our goal is to provide a loving Orthodox Christian atmosphere for support, accountability, study, and discussion, with the ultimate goal of restoring our souls and bodies to the image and likeness of God.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, November 9.

Thank you for your tremendous outpouring of prayers, and support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. IOCC’s Frontliner team have visited Orthodox parishes for Sunday Divine Liturgies and other services, offering emotional and spiritual support to local clergy and affected parishioners. Orthodox clergy represented the Orthodox community and IOCC at the interfaith service held at the Convention Center on Sunday 9/3.
IOCC’s first muck out took place on Saturday 9/4 with 13 volunteers and continued on 9/5 with an additional 15 volunteers. Rotating teams have completed 15 assessments and nine muck outs to date. More houses are slated for assessments in the coming weeks.
IOCC arranged, through partners Church World Service (CWS) and Good360, for two truckloads of hygiene kits, clean-up buckets, food, and baby products to the Houston area. The CWS truck arrived on 9/4 at St. Basil the Great Greek Orthodox Church containing 200 clean-up buckets and 6,000 hygiene kits. Distribution began immediately, and all the clean-up buckets were distributed within 24 hours, highlighting the great demand for these supplies.
IOCC staff is checking in with every Orthodox parish in the region to assess clean-up and other needs. Parishioners who have specific clean-up needs are asked to speak to their parish priest, who will coordinate with IOCC.
