Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center- 'Year in Review.'

Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center- 'Year in Review.'

This past year has been a testament of how God is using Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center to transform the spiritual lives of our people. To date, our Retreat Center has been able to facilitate the strengthening, and renewal of over 2,000 lives from our Diocese alone. It is evident from the various ministerial programs this past year, Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center is truly an investment for the present, and future of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in North America. Check out the recently released 'Year in Review' from Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center.

As we prepare to greet the new year with exciting programs for our people, we know that our work, has not come to an end, rather it has only begun. At this juncture, it is crucial that we continue working together to invest, and seek opportunities to build up, and support this sacred ministry.

In a recent a Kalpana to each parish in our Diocese, His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos offered his gratitude to the clergy and faithful throughout the Diocese, towards the ministry of the Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center. His Grace also reminded us: "It is only through generous donations of Stewards like you, this sacred ministry can be strengthened, and continue to be a place of transfiguration for the people of our Diocese, and Church as a whole. Through the blessed efforts of all of our clergy and faithful together, we hope to pay off our outstanding loans by the 10th anniversary of our Diocese in April 2019."

Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center is nestled away in Dalton, Pennsylvania, which is just minutes outside of downtown Scranton. It is enthroned on more than 300 sprawling acres, and includes a lake, beautiful trees and rolling hills ideal for outdoor meditation. The retreat center, includes a chapel, library, conference rooms, classrooms and offices. There are two dormitory wings to accommodate over 180 guests, and a gymnasium that comfortably seat 800 people.

Since May 2017, Holy Transfiguration has been fulfilling its sacred mission: to be a great spiritual powerhouse for our Diocese, and the Church as a whole - through purification, illumination, and deification.
