Saint Agnes Catholic Community Governance
The healthy success of any community relies on the active participation and wise leadership of its members. From its earliest days as a parish, St. Agnes CC has had wise, pragmatic and dedicated parishioners who stepped forward- sometimes asked, sometimes moved to volunteer, sometimes summoned- to work with the pastor and the diocese to create and maintain a parish that provided its members with liturgy, pastoral care, education and opportunities for ministry. The Finance Council, Pastoral Council, Faith Formation Board and Academy Board provide governance at St. Agnes.
A Message from Bishop Rozanski On Election Day, MA citizens will be asked to vote on a proposal to legalize recreational use of marijuana. If approved, this referendum could have an extremely devastating and dangerous impact on our society, particularly children and young adults. As our society battles the devastating opioid crisis and the lives it takes every day, it is beyond reason that we should legalize a gateway drug that, in addition to its own damaging effects, has led far too many users down the escalating path of drug abuse. Join leaders in faith, government, healthcare and public safety. Prevent Marijuana companies from targeting our kids.
