The Franciscan Parish of Church of the Transfiguration, inspired by St. Francis and his love for creation, invites member of our Family of Parishes to pray during the month of June, as we enjoy the beginning of summer, for greater respect and care for God’s creation.

Gracious Creator,

 as we enjoy these summer months,

may we grow in our appreciation

of the splendor of Your creation!

Thank you for the beauty that surrounds us.

May we care for our Common Home.

Possible Action Steps

Mondays, 7:30 PM

Church of the Transfiguration - Duns Scotus Room

FAITH Admitting one’s powerlessness and need for a savior is a central focus of Catholic in Recovery groups. From this foundation, we lean on our faithful understanding of Jesus Christ as our Higher Power. When groups gather, they unite in prayer and discuss recovery topics as they relate to liturgical themes, scripture from Sunday’s Mass readings, and the sacraments. Members are invited to engage the sacraments as a necessary component of their personal recovery while striving for spiritual growth, one day at a time.

FREEDOM The aim of each Catholic in Recovery group is to bring freedom to those struggling with addiction and unhealthy attachments. Meetings are not as much about reliving the past as they are about developing the appropriate attitudes and behavior for living each day successfully. Group members will be offered a spiritual awakening as a result of combining the spiritual wisdom of twelve-step recovery with Catholic theology, prayer, and healing.

FELLOWSHIP Uniting the body of Christ together allows members to share experience, strength, and hope with each other. Honesty, openness, and willingness to surrender to God’s will is the primary focus when groups gather together. As a result of consistent group meetings, members tend to stay accountable to each other, encourage personal growth, and are available in a time of need.
