The Transfiguration is an “Epiphany” story. Epiphany stories are common in ancient writing about holy people. In these stories, the veil which separates the invisible from the visible world, and the future from the present, is removed for a moment, and the truth is revealed.
Our parish’s mission is drawn from the five facets of a fully functioning parish, as depicted in the following document5 Facets of a Fully Functioning Parish

Mary’s Magnificat Prayer of Praise
My soul glorifies the Lord.
My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in my lowliness;
Henceforth all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me, Holy his name!
His mercy is from age to age, on those who revere him.
God puts forth his arm in strength and scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.
God fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
the mercy promised to our ancestors, to Abraham and his offspring for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Sharing the Mission of Jesus:
Lord, I thank you for the wonder of my being, and for all the goodness in my life.
I thank you that you have called me that I might make a difference in the world in which you have placed me.
Open my heart more fully to your Spirit, that I may rejoice in all that you have done and will do in me and through me. Amen
