Church & School Highlights

Our wonderful teachers!

Blessed with wonderful teachers!

Who holds a BA in Philosophy and Catholic Studies and graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of St. Thomas?  Who has an MA in Catholic Studies?  Who taught in Spain?  That’s right, our very own Mr. Shay!

Mr. Shay teaches Religion and Catholic Vision in our Middle School.  He’s been a teacher for 9 years.  Having had the privilege of being formed by the late Fr. Baer at St. John Vianney College Seminary, Mr. Shay jumped at the opportunity to teach at Transfiguration.  He has always loved learning, particularly about the doctrines of Christianity.  Mr. Shay felt compelled to share the rich intellectual tradition of his faith with the next generation.  He hopes for all to fall in love with the Truth, Beauty and Goodness, that is Jesus, the Incarnate Logos of God.  He loves watching his students grow intellectually and as people of faith.  One of his most favorite aspects of teaching is meeting up with former students and seeing how they are continuing to put into practice the formation they received in their Catholic grade school.

Mr. Shay is married to his wife, Ellen, of 5 years.  They don’t have any pets, but he’d love to get a dog.  He loves sailing, hiking, camping and canoeing – especially in the Boundary Waters.  He loves all things Tolkien, comic book movies, sermons by B1 & John Henry Newman, and time with family & friends.  His dream is to own a cabin in Northern MN and restore an antique pickup truck.  His favorite places to vacation are Spain, Greece and of course, the BWCA.  A pilgrimage to the tombs of his favorite English saints and a return to the Holy Land are on his bucket list.  Mr. Shay also loves Star Trek.  Can you guess who his favorite Star Trek Character is?
