Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother,
and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them;
his face shone like the sun
and his clothes became white as light.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them,
conversing with him.
Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
"Lord, it is good that we are here.
If you wish, I will make three tents here,
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
While he was still speaking, behold,
a bright cloud cast a shadow over them,
then from the cloud came a voice that said,
"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased;
listen to him."
When the disciples heard this, they fell prostrate
and were very much afraid.
But Jesus came and touched them, saying,
"Rise, and do not be afraid."
And when the disciples raised their eyes,
they saw no one else but Jesus alone.
As they were coming down from the mountain,
Jesus charged them,
"Do not tell the vision to anyone
until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead."

WOMEN'S EMMAUS RETREATE
The annual women’s Emmaus retreat is quickly approaching! The retreat will be held the weekend of March 24 – 26 at the Blue Ridge Assembly YMCA in Black Mountain, NC. This is a wonderful opportunity to recharge your spiritual
battery and connect with other women who want to learn more about their faith. For more information, please contact Shannon Slaughter at 760-362-3477.
Applications can be found on the church website under Ministries/ Women’s Emmaus or outside the parish office. This is your chance to say “Yes” to Him in 2017!
Here is what Gloria Babb, a St. Paul’s parishioner, said about her retreat:
“This weekend I had my Emmaus walk in North Carolina and it was hands-down one of the best weekends of my life! I was embraced by God and His perfect love for me and He spoke loud and clear to me. I was blessed to have some quiet time to reflect but also much time with some amazing women that I now call my friends & sisters in Christ. If you ever have an opportunity to do this- run, don't walk... invest in yourself & grow closer to our Savior, Jesus.”
We hope you will join us!
