Easter Altar Mosaic at Transfiguration Wauconda

Welcome To Transfiguration Parish

We are a people called to build a Catholic faith community by seeking Christ and sharing His Gospel through prayer, education, service and social activities.


Fr. Ron's Farewell weekend June 11 & 12
Ron will preach at all the weekend masses and there will be light refreshments at receptions following each of the masses.

We continue our planning for the monthly activities which began in August of 2015 and end in August of 2016. We will kicked off the year with Prayer: August 9 Bishop Rassas presided at the 9 am mass to begin the anniversary year. Oktoberfest took place on September 19. We are also planning service and outreach activities, other masses at various locations, picnics and participation in area parades on Memorial Day and July 4. We need your participation in the planning and success of our activities. Anyone that would have historical information and pictures to please contact us. Our history committee would love to speak with you. Please contact Kathie at the Parish Office 847-526-2400 x245.

Transfiguration To Teach Who Christ Is
Please watch our Youtube video: click here

Transfiguration started the To Teach Who Christ Is campaign in the autumn of 2013 and received pledges totaling $670,000 toward our goal of $1,015,000. Your generosity has allowed us to move forward with important projects. These include the sealing and restriping of the parking lots, replacing lights in the Parish Life Center, installing a new phone and computer system. An architect has assisted with the renovation of the Church. Thank you for your early and generous financial support which has allowed these developments to become a reality.

However, we are still short of addressing all of our needs and fulfilling our goals. Thus, I have decided to reintroduce the To Teach Who Christ Is campaign and at the same time, increase our original goal of $1,015,000 to $1,500,000. Enhancing our goal will allow us to address additional needs, reduce our debt and establish a reserve fund. In just a couple of short weeks, our renewed efforts have already raised $250,000 in new pledges from just 51 families - This brings our new total raised to almost $920,000!

In the coming weeks, I will ask for your thoughtful and prayerful pledge. If you have questions please contact our campaign chairs: Gene Faut at 224-305-6176 or Mark or Karen Abernathy 847-526-6079.Weekly Wednesday Holy Hour
Our Evangelization Commission invites you to attend our Wednesday Holy Hour at 7 PM in Church.  Come and experience the peace of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Join the journey with guided prayer, music and silence.  Come and be spiritually fed and uplifted.

Holy Year, Jubilee of Mercy Minimize

It is a grace that Transfiguration has been designated as a pilgrimage site for the Holy Uear, Jubilee of Mercy. Doors at the main churh and Old White Church (weekday masses) have been appropriately blessed and marked. The doors indicate that we are leaving our regular life, crossing a threshold to enter a new living place to relate with God's mercy. The action may be physical but the result is spiritual. It includes a time of prayer, either receiving the Eucharist, another service or personal reflection; making a profession of faith; going to confession and praying for the intentions of Pope Francis. This obtains a plenary indulgence which is "a remission before God of temporal punishment for sins which have already been forgiven." The church as minister of redemption has the authorith to dispense this treasure. A plenary indulgence may be applied to someone who has died.

Additionally, our ARchbishop Cupich encourages us to practice one of the spiritual or corporal works of mercy during this Year of Mercy. They are included here:

Corporal Works of Mercy: Feed the hungry; give drink to the thirsty; clothe the naked; welcome the stranger; visit the sick; visit the imprisoned; bury the dead.

Spiritual Works of Mercy: Counsel the doubtful; teach those who lack knowledge; admonish sinners; comfort the affliceted; forgive those who hurt us; bear patiently thos who so us ill; pray for the living and the dead.

Be merciful as your heavenly Father is merciful.
