The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ is celebrated each year on August 6. The feast commemorates the transfiguration or metamorphosis of Christ on Mount Tabor, when our Lord appeared in His divine glory before the Apostles Peter, James, and John.
St. Melany’s is an Eastern Catholic Church of the ancient Byzantine tradition. Our liturgy, spirituality, discipline and theology are Orthodox in practice. Our church is in full communion with the Bishop of Rome and is under the jurisdiction of the Most Reverend Gerald N. Dino, Bishop of the Eparchy of Phoenix. All Catholics may fulfill their Sunday obligation by participating in our Divine Liturgy.
