Our Parish Ministries

We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved.

Parish Council

The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The Ladies Philoptochos Society is the duly accredited philanthropic society of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Our chapter supports local, regional, and national charitable organizations in fulfillment of its mission to “help the poor, the destitute, the hungry, the aged, the sick, the unemployed, the orphaned, the imprisoned, the widowed, those with disabilities, and the victims of disasters."

Sunday School

The Sunday School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which may include an introduction to church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical songs. Please contact Corrine Dubay, Assistant Director, at sundayschool@transchurch.org for more information.

Youth Ministry

We believe that the goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church, and that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily.

Our annual Vacation Church Camp and Family Fun Night programs are a great way for younger children and their families to experience the life of the Church and to grow in their faith. Please contact Olivia Sintros at vcc@transchurch.org to get involved.

Youth ages 12-18 are encouraged to participate in our GOYA program. Please contact Thea Tully at goya@transchurch.org for details.

Music Ministries

Music plays an integral role in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. We are thankful to our dedicated chanters, who offer the beautiful hymns of Orthros, Holy Week, and other special services throughout the year.

All are invited to join our mixed-voice choir, which sings during Divine Liturgy each Sunday. Please email music@transchurch.org to get involved.

Communications Ministries

A successful parish relies on the timely and effective dissemination of information. Through our website, email listserv, online Weekly Bulletins, and social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, + Twitter), we strive to keep all parishioners engaged, informed, and inspired. Please contact Melanie Pappas at communications@transchurch.org to learn more.

To submit content for our monthly Trans-a-Gram newsletter, please contact Fr. Tom at frtom@transchurch.org.

Altar Servers

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles, or liturgical fans in processions and entrances. Please contact Fr. Tom at frtom@transchurch.org for more information.

Bible Study

Join us on Wednesdays at 10am (see our calendar for exact dates) for a fun and interesting Orthodox Bible Study. Our group is open to all.

The Transfiguration parish family hosts dinner at the Lowell Transitional Living Center (LTLC) on the second Saturday of each month. The opportunity to serve dinner is open to all parishioners. Gather a group of 4 or 5 and sign up for your month on the poster in the lower lobby.

Community Kitchen

Community meals are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 11:30am-12:30pm at the Transfiguration Outreach Center. Parishioners and friends are invited to join us for a free lunch and fellowship. Please check the calendar for exact dates.
