LAST Sunday after The Epiphany, 11am

March 2, 2014



Transfiguration”  – Raphael (1520)


"Six days after Peter had acknowledged Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white." – Matthew 17:1
