Bishop Peter Names the Peoria, IL Mission

(This is a re-post.  I'm not sure what happend, but the original post was somehow deleted.)

Blessed news!

On August 29th, His Grace Bishop Peter decided to list our mission in the ROCOR directory and gave us the name:

Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission

...after the recent feast after the celebration of which the mission was first publicly announced.

Troparion Tone 7: 
Thou was transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, /
Who didst show Thy glory unto Thy disciples as far as they could bear it.  /
May Thine eternal light shine forth upon us sinners /
through the prayers of the Theotokos.  //
O Bestower of light, glory be to Thee!

On the mountain wast Thou transfigured, /
and Thy disciples beheld Thy glory as far as they could bear it, O Christ God; /
that when they would see Thee crucified, /
they would comprehend that Thy suffering was voluntary, //
and proclaim to the world that Thou art in truth the Effulgence of the Father.
