A Church Grows in Blythewood

Staying in the Carolinas, I spent Divine Mercy Sunday (see, I told you I had a lot of catching up to do) at Transfiguration Parish in Blythewood, S.C.

Transfiguration is relatively young, as the photos likely demonstrate. The church was founded in 2000 in a rural area north of Columbia. As you can see, the beauty at Transfiguration is largely found outside the church, which sits on a couple of hundred acres of land and is surrounded by tall trees. The parish has made good use of the setting.

From the perspective of the book, Transfiguration was a somewhat unique stop on my trip, as I was there to profile a single lay person, a lovely woman named Connie Turgeon who I’m sure all will find inspirational.

I didn’t get any photos of Connie, because I’m often dumb like that.
