Parish Ministries

The Parish of the Transfiguration is a welcoming community of faith in the Roman Catholic tradition that serves the greater Manchester area.

Our mission is to promote spiritual growth as the

Body of Christ by proclaiming the Word

of God, celebrating the Sacraments and transforming our faith

into action and outreach.

As God further

revealed Himself in the Transfiguration, we ask

Him to help us make

His presence known to

all of God's children.

We commit ourselves

to be faithful followers

of Jesus Christ and witnesses to the Gospel.

OUR HISTORY

In February of 2002, the parishes of Saint Edmund of Canterbury and Saint John the Baptist merged into the newly named Parish of The Transfiguration. On June 10, 2007 St. Patrick Church also joined the parish community as a result of the clustering process on the West Side of Manchester.   .

 

Worship services are held in the former St. John the Baptist church building constructed in 1964. Ongoing Christian formation for all ages takes place in the Parish Center on Kelley St. with ample space for all parish activities and the Parish Nurse Program affiliated with CMC hospital. A third building adjacent to the parish center, the rectory,  is the home of the pastor and several priests in semi-retirement.  This same building is where you will find the business and pastoral offices and the Mother Rivier Chapel. 

 

Our logo signifies the merging of our parishes and the name of our faith community is inspired by the experience of the apostles Peter, James and John who were present at the Transfiguration of Jesus.

 

Like the apostles, whose understanding of the Good News of Jesus was a dynamic and challenging process, the union of our churches has served as an opportunity for continued spiritual growth and renewal. The shared histories, traditions, and talents of our parishioners are the gifts that we offer to each other and to the greater community of  Manchester.
