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)

Forgiveness Sunday - Expulsion from Paradise

On this last Sunday before Great Lent, the Orthodox Church remembers the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise. God commanded them to fast from the fruit of the tree, but they did not obey. In this way Adam and Eve and their descendants became heirs of death and corruption.
During Forgiveness Sunday Vespers we hear the Lord's teaching about fasting and forgiveness just as we enter the Lenten season with fasting and forgiveness toward one another. If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you your trespasses.
The Gospel reading of the day advises that you should not fast like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. Instead, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear outwardly to be fasting. Your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

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.

We were honored to have Bishop Alexander visit with us on Sept 24th for Great Vespers and Sept 25th for the Hierarchical Liturgy.

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.
