Message From the Pastor

Dear Parents,

Since its inception, Transfiguration Academy has provided an educational and spriritual home to the children from Bergenfield and many neighboring communities. Formed from the parish schools of St. John the Evangelist in Bergenfield, Ascension in New Milford, and St. Mary's in Dumont, we are proud of the Academy’s numerous accomplishments and look forward to even greater achievements under the continued leadership of our principal, Mr. James Carlo.

In addition to formal religion classes, which our priests and deacons visit regularly, there are many opportunities throughout the year to strengthen Catholic faith. Regular school Masses on First Fridays and major holy days supplement the worship experience your children should already enjoy on Sundays with you in your local parish.

Children are part of our devotions, including Rosary, Advent Wreath, Stations of the Cross, and May Crowning.  Outreach to the poor and afflicted are also highlighted in various projects throughout the year.

We are delighted with our entire staff of teachers and administrators, and continue to be enthused by all that they and we together as a community are able to do.

All your pastors and parochial vicars assure you of our ongoing prayers and continued dedication to Transfiguration Academy. I welcome you to learn more about the faith-filled education that we provide at Transfiguration Academy.

Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. Richard J. Arnhols
Pastoral Administrator
