Ministries for serving others and the congregation at Church of the Transfiguration. All locations are on the church campus unless another address is specified.
Every month our Outreach Committee makes soups and salads for local people in need. This ministry also collects supplies, food, and clothing, especially winter coats, hats and gloves for our cold weather months on a monthly basis. For more information, please contact Carol Zimmerman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

First and Fourth Tuesdays • 6:30 pm • Stewart Lounge
Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one lay caring ministry, taking place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. For more information, contact Karen Coriden at email@example.com or Father Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
First Wednesdays • 1:00 pm • Chapel of St. Joseph and St. Mary
The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes prayer shawls for people who are sick or in the hospital. All are welcome to join us as we serve! For more information, contact Georgine McCarthy at email@example.com.
These are parishioners who love to bake, providing us with our weekly communion bread. Formally known as the St. Nicholas Guild, our bakers use a recipe that has been in our parish for many years, giving a tremendous feeling of continuity to this ministry. If you are interested in joining the bakers, contact Georgine McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Altar Guild prepares the altar for our Sunday Eucharist. For more information or to join the Altar Guild, contact Shelley Black at email@example.com.
Flower Guild members arrange the flowers for the altar each Sunday. The Guild is made up of parishioners who love flowers and want to share that love with God and the parish family. No experience in flower arranging is necessary—beginners are paired with the more experienced. We have a lot of fun and are always looking for new faces and ideas! If you are interested in joining the Flower Guild, contact Joan Shrimpton at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lay Eucharistic Visitors
For those who are unable to attend regular services, the sacrament of Holy Communion is always available. Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) are parishioners who are specially trained to bring communion to those in need. Any pastoral needs and prayer requests of the recipients are brought back to the community. This is an important way that our parish community stays in touch. When sacraments are needed on an emergency basis, please contact Father Michael at 303-907-6282.
If you would like to be visited by Lay Eucharistic Visitors or are interested in becoming one, contact Father Michael at email@example.com.
