About the Church of the Transfiguration:
The Church of the Transfiguration stands at the spiritual center of the Community of Jesus, serving both as its principal place of worship and as a visible sign of God’s presence in the midst of a living fellowship. Dedicated in June of 2000, the church is primarily a house of prayer: a building that houses the worship of God in Holy Eucharist, Liturgy of the Hours (sung in Gregorian Chant), and Choral Evensong, as well as in private devotion. The church’s design is drawn from an architectural heritage shared by all Christians, and its shape reflects the Community’s monastic tradition and ecumenical vision.
The art program in the church tells the story of salvation, recounting God’s word from Genesis to Revelation, through hand-crafted mosaic, fresco images, bronze, glass, and stone sculpture. As a permanent testimony to the love and faithfulness of God, the church visually proclaims the message that all earthly life has heavenly meaning, and that in all things God may be glorified.
