13 Mar 20 - A message from Fr. Christopher Malatesta

Help us spread the word. The Bishop has closed all Churches until further notice. There will be no Masses or programs. As the government recommends social distancing it is best we do not gather as crowds in Church. No Mass beginning tomorrow morning. FC

13 Mar 20  - COVID-19 Updated diocesan directive

Based on the current situation as well as the statements made today by Gov. Baker and the President, Bishop Mitchell Rozanskias issued these updated directives.

     1/ All Masses and other activities are suspended in all parishes until further notice. I would strongly urge parishioners to view our televised Mass, the Chalice of Salvation which airs in Berkshire County at 6am Sunday on WXXA Fox23 Albany and elsewhere on WWLP 22News Sunday morning at 10am.  And there will be 2 live streamed Masses, Saturday at 4pm and Sunday at 10am,  via a link at www.stagnescc.com.

** Note: Regrettably, during the duration of this directive, there will be no access to the St. Agnes Parish doors.

** Only the Saturday 4PM and Sunday 10AM Masses will be streamed…with replays available on the hour following the Mass.

** There is no Daily Mass Live Streaming or Mass.   

     2/ The only exception for parish based activities would be Take & Eat programs which may continue at the discretion of the pastor. 

     3/All pastoral in-home and nursing home visits are to be discontinued unless the individual is in critical condition. 

     4/ Catholic schools will close for two weeks.
