Festal Eucharist

Add to My Calendar

Sunday, August 6, 2017
11:00 am High Altar


The Tranfiguration is remembered each year not only on (or near) August 6, but also on the Last Sunday after the Epiphany, the season of Epiphany being a time when we travel alongside the disciples as they come to know Jesus of Nazareth as Christ, the Messiah.

At Saint Thomas, there have been many sermons over the years which are helpful in understanding this miraculous event. Among them are these.


O God, who on the holy mount didst reveal to chosen witnesses thy well-beloved Son, wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening: Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may by faith behold the King in his beauty; who with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.
