WE HAVE GONE VIRTUAL

Due to the current situation, Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church has gone completely virtual.
Click the tabs below to get connected with everything that is going on.

All the liturgical services scheduled will be live streamed. View the calendar for the dates and times.

I pray all of you  and your families are well and holding up during these most difficult of times.

After a good bit of thought and some experimenting, I have put together our next class with narration. I apologize if it is a little disjointed. I hope that subsequent efforts will improve. I will try to post a class at least once week. In addition, I will try to go back to the beginning of the series so that all the  classes will be available in this format.

I have not used my blog for a while, but this is an excellent opportunity to once again use this vehicle. This is the link  to my blog “OrthodoxPraxis.org” on which I have posted the class. I have had to use a link to Dropbox because of the size of the file. I hope you enjoy and as always I will answer any questions you send and would appreciate your comments. Here is the link: http://orthodoxpraxis.org/the-story-of-the-church-the-age-of-the-councils-class-7/    Please have a look at past posts as well.

Also, to help your Lenten Journey, I am posting a short class on the Feast of the Annunciation. Our Holy Church celebrates this great feast on March 25, which is this Wednesday. This short lesson is to help introduce the feast to you all. Please use this opportunity to celebrate this great feast with the Universal Church . The Divine Liturgy will be streamed live on the Church’s website at transfiguration.org.
This introductory class is available on my blog: orthodoxpraxis.org. If you have any questions please email them to me. Next week, we will return to our study of the Story of the Church: The Age of the Councils. We will discuss the 4th and 5th Ecumenical Councils. in future posts it is my plan to introduce some of the other Lenten services and to introduce you all to the theology of Holy Week and Pascha, as always, if you have any suggestions or would like specific topics explored please let me know.

God bless and keep you and your families well…..
