Parish Mission Statement
We are God’s Instruments who strive to grow by sharing and
Dear Parishioners and Visitors, Welcome to our New Website!
Transfiguration of Our Lord Roman Catholic Parish in Etobicoke broke ground in 1960. Rev. Lacey (who later become a bishop in the Archdiocese of Toronto) built this parish and was with it during its inception. Transfiguration, once with a predominantly Irish community, has grown much from its roots and has become a vibrant multicultural population much like the city it resides in. The parish which has affectionately been called Trans by its parishioners had the addition of a chapel in 2000. With over 3000 families, the parish is one of the largest in the West end of the city.
It is a blessing for me to be a part of this wonderful parish and my prayer is that we all continue to move closer to Jesus for many years to come.
