Did you know that there were 8 Catholic families in Harrisonburg in the 1860's? The Kellys, Kennedys, Lambs, O'Connells, Cavans, Scanlons, Sullivans, and Murphys. In the 1870's, a Methodist church was purchased for the small Catholic community and named Catholic Church of the Transfiguration. It burned down in 1905 and in 1906 hte cornerstone was laid for our historic church.
Since then we have grown to a diverse, family-centered, active parish that celebrates Christ in the Sacraments and in service to each other and the community. Come find a ministry or a group to nurture your baptismal calling. We hope to see you at mass!
All adults who work with children at Church need to attend this training program just once.
The RCIA is the process of formation and instruction for those adults who wish to be baptized and those baptized Christians who wish to enter the Roman Catholic Church. It is a discernment JOURNEY, a process of learning and growing towards making a decision to follow Christ in the Catholic Church. We offer programs for adults in English and Spanish and a separate program for children 7+.
