Mass Delays / Cancellations:
If school is delayed on a Wednesday, the 8:15 am Mass will be celebrated at 1:00 pm. Monday Scripture and Communion Services will follow the School Schedule. If school has been canceled for the day due to weather,
holidays, teacher’s meeting, etc., we will not have the Scripture study/Communion service.
All other weekday Masses will still be held at their regular time. When a weekday Mass is canceled it will be posted on Social Media. Please call the Parish Office or Father Conrad if in doubt. 502-931-9303 Weekend Masses will be canceled for a County Level 3 Snow Emergency and will be announced via television, radio, and internet. Whenever weather is questionable please use your own judgement
Anointing of the Sick
If you or someone you know would like to receive Communion in the hospital, please notify the parish office with the name of the individual as well as the room number. The hospital will not give us this information. If possible please ask for Anointing of the Sick the weekend before a scheduled surgery. If you have someone at home who is unable to come to church, please call the parish office and ask specifically for the Sacrament of the Sick, Holy Eucharist, or Reconciliation. We have Communion Ministers who bring Communion to the homebound weekly. We rely on you to inform the parish office when there is a sickness that keeps you home. So we can minister to your spiritual needs
We are pleased to announce that our church has partnered with myEoffering in order to provide you with the convenience of online contribution. Online contribution refers to a process much like online bill pay, whereby donors opt to have their financial contributions to the church withdrawn directly from their credit, debit, checking, or savings account in lieu of bringing cash or paper checks each Sunday.
Many people are worried about the security of their financial data, especially with the headlines concerning identity theft. Rest assured that we chose myEoffering in part because of their strict security measures. They have passed all the required tests to be fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. This means that they are using the latest technologies available to protect against would-be data thieves. They have processed electronic donations for many churches in the United States and we feel comfortable in the security their service provides.
myEoffering has designed a secure, web-based platform in which donors may privately and prayerfully make one-time or recurring donations. Prayerful consideration of giving to God first enables you to witness a powerful sense of stewardship. You can customize a completely individual method of giving, based on how and when you receive your income - whether it be bi-weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly. By setting up recurring donations to be automatically debited from your account, it allows the church to better plan budgets and expenditures and provides a more accurate financial forecast. It also enables you to stay on the path of your contribution goals by ensuring that even if you are unable to attend church on a particular Sunday, you needn’t worry about remembering to make that contribution the following week. With more consistent stewardship, our church is able to focus more on the ministry of God.
Signing up is as simple as going to our church website (www.transfigurationofthelordparish.com) and clicking on the “Donate Now” button. You’ll register an account and within minutes you will be giving your first online donation. The steps are outlined below or you can download them
by clicking HERE.
We invite you to try electronic contributions and we hope you find it very convenient. You can use any computer or mobile device to donate electronically. Or, if you don’t have access to a computer but would still like your offerings to be deducted from your account, ask a member of the church administration to set up your offering.
As always, we thank you for your generous sharing of treasures in the spirit and practice of stewardship.
May God Bless You!

The Hinesmans will be selling discount cards after church Saturday.
September brings another season for welcoming new Catholics into the church. We are all called to evangelize. This can be simply living our faith well but as opportunities arise and the Spirit moves us we should be more explicit in inviting people "home". The RCIA program is a great way to do this in a non-confrontational way. For more information, call us at 419-294-1268.
Each year, the Diocese of Toledo is required to undergo an audit to ensure that it is in compliance with the articles of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Bishop Daniel Thomas is pleased to announce that the Diocese was found to be in full compliance with the requirements in the Charter following the audit for fiscal year 2019-2020.
The Diocese of Toledo remains committed to ensuring the protection of children and providing a safe environment for all young people. If you have any knowledge of abuse that has been committed by a cleric or by any personnel of the Catholic Church, you are urged to report the abuse to your local police department, Children Services, and to contact the Diocesan Victim Assistance Coordinator at (419) 214-4880; or to write to the Diocesan Victim Assistance Coordinator at 1933 Spielbusch Avenue; Toledo, Ohio 43604.
THE WELCOME COMMITTEE is offering a meal to new parents returning home from the hospital with your new-born miracle of life. This is an opportunity for the family not to have to worry about what to prepare for supper. Please call Mary Riedlinger or Joan Kincade if you would like to have a nice dinner with no cooking.
We have had several people ask about becoming a parish or school volunteer. And some of you have indicated you do not want to take the Virtus class on-line but would prefer taking a class in person. If we get enough interested people the diocese will conduct the class at our location. The class takes about 2 hours and you need only to bring a pen. If you are interested please call the parish office at 419- 294-1268. The diocese would like at least 20 people in the class and would like to advertise it and get individuals from surrounding parishes to attend as well.
