It is celebrated on August 6th in the Catholic Church and other Western churches.

The Transfiguration Feast Prayer
O God,
who on the holy mount
revealed to chosen witnesses
your well-beloved Son,
wonderfully transfigured,
in raiment white and glistening:
Mercifully grant that we,
being delivered from
the disquietude of this world,
may by faith behold the King
in his beauty;
who with you, O Father,
and you, O Holy Spirit,
lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
