The Church of the Transfiguration is the center of Community of Jesus - an ecumenical Benedictine monastic community located at Rock Harbor on the shores of Cape Cod Bay. The Community follows a daily rhythm of prayer including Eucharist and Liturgy of the Hours (sung in Gregorian chant). Designed by William Rawn Associates of Boston, the Church of the Transfiguration is a contemporary expression of an ancient 4th century style of architecture, and recounts the story of salvation through hand-crafted mosaic and fresco images, bronze, glass, and stone sculpture. The organ is a restoration and expansion of pipework from twelve organs built by the E.M. Skinner Organ Company in the early 20th century. As of 3/15/2020 the Church is CLOSED until further notice. Please check back in a few weeks for updated information.
A visit to the magnificent Church of the Transfiguration in Orleans - this building rivals some of the most impressive cathedrals in the world (in my opinion) and quietly blends into the peaceful community of Rock Harbor, Orleans, Ma. From the waterfall of gold on glass, to the electrifying frescos and meticulous detail throughout the building and community, this amazing place is well worth a visit. Their gift shop offers a variety of locally crafted goods and helps complete your experience.
