  • LET’S SHOWER A NEW FAMILY WITH LOVE FROM SAINT AGNES!

    Our very own Youth Minister, Justin Brown and his wife, Kelly will be blessed very soon with a foster child! We are so happy for Justin and Kelly and the beautiful gift from God they will soon receive. The faculty and staff at Saint Agnes will be hosting a “Shower of Love” very soon! Since they don’t know the age or gender of the child, we are trying to help them in any way that we can. They may receive a boy or girl from birth to age 5 and need to be prepared on short notice!  If you have any new or gently used clothing (birth to 5T), toys, baby gear, etc. that you would like to donate, please drop off to the rectory porch or to the school.  Please put your name and address on the donation. Thank you in advance for your generosity and for participating in a beautiful way to say “Welcome and God Bless!” to this new member of Justin and Kelly’s family!

Saint Agnes Catholic Community Governance

LINK TO BOARD/COUNCIL MEMBERSHIP

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.
