===== May Crowning

Virgin Mary Crowning

The month of May is dedicated to Mary. The traditional practice of crowning an image of Mary is done on the first day of May; however, this year at Transfiguration Church we celebrated May Crowning on the First Communion Masses on Saturday, May 2, 2021, to have the communicants bring to our Blessed Mother a beautiful bouquet of flowers. 
We invite the parish community to continue to pray for these children who received the Holy Body of Christ for the first time.

Coronación de Virgen Maria

El mes de mayo está dedicado a María. La práctica tradicional de coronar una imagen de María se realiza el primer día de mayo; sin embargo, este año en la Iglesia de la Transfiguración celebramos la Coronación de Mayo en las Misas de Primera Comunión el Sábado 2 de Mayo de 2021, que los comulgantes lleven a la Santísima Virgen un hermoso ramo de flores.

Invitamos a la comunidad parroquial a continuar orando por estos niños que recibieron el Santo Cuerpo de Cristo por primera vez.


05.18.21 ===== In Person Mass Update

Reservations for mass attendance are no longer required. We hope that everyone will join us again for the celebration of our Liturgies:
Monday – Friday:  8:00 am English
Saturday: 4:00 pm English; 6:00 pm Spanish
Sunday: 8:00 am and 10:00 am English; 1:00 pm Polish


We will require masks for some time yet but you can sit closer to people (increased capacity), no temperatures when entering, though we will continue to sanitize your hands when you arrive. We expect some of these protocols to be relaxed in the coming weeks/months.

Lord, it is good to be here!


05.01.21 ===== Congratulations FIrst Communicants

On behalf of the Transfiguration School of Religion director, Catechists, Frassati Principal, Teachers, Families, and Friends.

And united by the Most Blessed Sacrament, we would like to congratulate the 2020/2021 First Communicants! 

Rev. Fr. Juan Avila Ibarra and Fr. Alex Garcia, welcome many families on Saturday, May 1, 2021, where 52 children united with Jesus Christ through the Holy Eucharist, the precious body of Christ. May that they be filled and nourished by our Lord and Savior.  May the good lord guide them throughout their journey and pray that God’s grace shine upon them today as they grow in the spirit of His embrace now and always.

The whole parish community is invited to keep them in your prayers as they journey along with Christ.


===== Annual Catholic Appeal 2021

THANK YOU for your participation in the Annual Catholic Appeal.  You may still participate by visiting: annualcatholicappeal.com.  Be sure to note Transfiguration as your Parish.  Funds collected beyond our goal are returned to the parish, which helps our mission in building our Catholic Faith Community through the service and activities it helps us provide.


===== Tax Credit Scholarship – Limited Time Special Opportunity

Frassati Catholic Academy needs our support today. Currently, there are 49 students on a waiting list hoping to receive funding so that they will be financially able to attend Frassati Catholic Academy next year. From now until MAY 31, Frassati has a fantastic opportunity to have all donations made through the Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship program matched dollar for dollar by a generous donor, doubling the impact of these donations. All donations made through this program by individuals are also eligible for a 75% Illinois state income tax credit.


Please consider helping to fund scholarships for Frassati students in need. Frassati Catholic Academy and the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic School’s Scholarship Department will be hosting an online informational meeting on Wednesday, April 28 at 7 pm via Zoom. This meeting will discuss the benefits of donating to the Invest in Kids Tax Credit Scholarship Program, and the steps you need to take to donate through this program. A Zoom link will be emailed directly to all who register HERE. As an added incentive, anyone who attends the online Zoom presentation will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card just for listening. Please note that there is no obligation to donate.
For additional information about this amazing opportunity to help fund Catholic education, please listen to the attached short video https://youtu.be/_1t6oivo7PM
