Transfiguration is a wonderful, pastoral sized parish in a small, mountain town that is a favorite for day tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. The parish is comprised of mostly retired adults who moved to the area from a variety of other locales, bringing tremendous energy and a thirst for continued faith formation. The parish is engaged in a variety of community outreach ministries and parishioners understand pastoral care to be a shared ministry with the priest.
The parish is very aware of their reluctance to "change for change's sake" but recognize that the church must adapt to the emerging needs of the world.
The Rev. Canon Augusta Anderson
