===== Praying for Our Loved Ones At Mass

The names of our loved ones have already been placed in the altar of our parish. Every mass celebrated in this church will be offered for the eternal rest of all of them. —May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Ya hemos colocado los nombres de nuestros seres queridos en el altar de nuestra parroquia. Cada misa que se celebre en esta iglesia será ofrecida por el descanso eterno de todas ellas. —Dales, Señor, el descanso eterno. Y brille para ellos la luz perpetua. Y que las almas de todos los fieles difuntos, por la misericordia de Dios, descansen en paz. Amén.

Na ołtarzu naszej parafii umieściliśmy już imiona naszych bliskich. Każda msza celebrowana w tym kościele będzie ofiarowana za wieczny odpoczynek wszystkich z nich. (Google translation) —Wieczny odpoczynek racz im dać, Panie, a światłość wiekuista niechaj im świeci. Niech odpoczywają w pokoju. Amen

===== Ministry of Prayer

We know that life can be challenging and the only thing that may help to get you back to center is Prayer. We believe very strongly in the power of Prayer. This belief and knowing comes from seeing or hearing about the many demonstrations or testimonies in the lives of people around the world. 
At the end of weekend Masses the Transfiguration Ministry of Prayer will be in the front of the Church to pray for you or someone you love and care for.
Please know that each Minister of Transfiguration Ministry of Prayer commits to holding your intentions in the light of Christ, standing in Truth, Principle and Love. Prayer is the tool we use to know the truth. It is not about begging or pleading for something to happen to change the conditions in life. It is about aligning ourselves with the all good of God that surrounds us at all times. Every request we receive is treated with love, compassion, respect and dignity.


===== Parking Lot Repair Project

Dear Parishioners,
Our 2 parking lots are in bad condition. The one across from the school needs sealing and striping. The church lot, however, needs some major repairs and then sealing and striping. We would like to use $66,000 of our To Teach Who Christ money. This repair was not listed in our original case statement and therefore we are required to publish this in our bulletin for 2 weeks according to the Archdiocese policy.
We are in the process of getting final bids, however, the estimated cost for both lots is $80,000. Any donations you can make to cover the additional $14,000 would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all you do for our parish!

===== Meet Israel Santiago

Hello brothers and sisters from Transfiguration Parish.
     Please allow me to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Israel Santiago, I am a candidate for the Permanent Diaconate and I will be ordained a Permanent Deacon on May 14, 2022. I ask of your prayers as I assure you mine for all of you.
     My family is made up of my wife Rosa M. Gil and our children Jazmin, Daniel and Jezenia Santiago. I am originally from the State of Morelos, Mexico, my wife is from the State of Michoacán, Mexico. We have belong to Transfiguration since 2013. In Easter 2015, I received the Sacraments of Initiation through the RCIA to be part of this great family of God. I have been participating in different ministries of the church: Lector,
Extraordinary Minister of Communion, Acolyte, and Member of the Pastoral Council and most recently, chair of the Liturgy Ministry for the Latino Ministry Commission.
In 2016 I began my studies at the Pastoral Leadership Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein. In 2018 I had the privilege of responding to God’s call through the invitation to be part of the formation program of the Permanent
Diaconate of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake.
     I THANK GOD for life, thank my wife and children for the support they have given me, my mentor Rev. JUAN PABLO AVILA IBARRA, for his support and advice to be a part of this journey at the service of God, to Deacon Jose Mancilla for his accompaniment, and to the community in general for your support and prayers.
     I look forward to continue serving God and the Transfiguration community. I put myself in the hands of God and, with his help, to be able to serve this community as I am called to do. 
     Once again, greetings and my prayers for each one of you.
     Israel Santiago.

===== 2022 Annual Catholic Appeal

Annual Catholic Appeal 2022

The theme of this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal is Making all things new … God’s promise and our responsibility. We are called to embrace God’s promise of making all things new and to embrace our own responsibility to work with God’s plan. Our support of the Annual Catholic Appeal keeps us close to God’s promise of renewal and our responsibility to work for it.

Through the Appeal, we are a part of making all things new in parishes and Catholic schools in need, in programs of religious education and ministry formation and in initiatives to address justice, peace and respect for life. We extend renewal and hope throughout the world through Catholic Relief Services.

If you have donated to the Annual Catholic Appeal in previous years, you may receive a letter from the Archdiocese of Chicago for the 2022 appeal.  Our goal this year is to reach: $44,719. Any fulfilled pledges above that amount are returned to Transfiguration Parish for use as needed.  Prayerfully consider making a pledge this year.  More information will be made available in coming weeks.
