Join with fellow parishioners striving to embrace a "faith that does justice" through prayer & reflection, education, and action. Outreach opportunities include preparing and serving meals to those in our community in need.
Parishioners donate food each week to provide food bags for those in need. Over 350 bags of groceries are distributed each month. Donations barrels are at church entrances.
Our mission is to provide a loving and safe environment which promotes full membership in the Body of Christ and the Church through education and understanding of Church teachings, mutual support and conversation; outreach to our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters; and social events that make all feel welcome and included.
Our Hospitality & Welcoming Committee helps to plan major Parish events and provide a welcoming atmosphere for parishioners and visitors to Saint Agnes. Each Sunday after the 10:30am Liturgy all are welcome to gather in the hospitality area of the church for fellowship and refreshments.
The Pastoral Council was formed to assist the Pastor with vision and planning. The current members are: Fr. Ray Allender, Madie Baptiste, Maureen Beckman, John Bertken, Sr. Virginia Espinal, Kathy Ghanayem, John Lee, Frank Mitchell, Shannon Raggio, Mark Malaspina & Karen McCarthy Xavier.
Adults, young adults, and teenagers are invited to serve as greeters, ushers, lectors and Eucharistic ministers at our liturgies. Training is provided throughout the year. The Liturgy and Environment Committee helps plan and oversee our worship and prepare the worship space. Our choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm and sings at the 10:30am Mass on Sundays. The current lector & EM schedule can be found here.
Our commitment is to assure that no member of our community grieves alone, in the case of death or other losses. Our ministry consists of: written support at the time of loss, individual calls and visits as needed, group support resources. Training is available.
Meet other young Catholics in their 20s and 30s! We have a Christian Life Community that meets on the first Thursday of each month for prayer, faith sharing and fellowship! We also have monthly drop-in gatherings for Young Adults looking to connect, recharge and build community. Check out our bulletin or contact our Young Adult group. More information on YA events in the diocese can be found here.
When a child is baptized, the parents promise that they will be the first and best teachers in matters of the faith for their child. We are happy to help you in this. Please visit our CFF page for more information.
Interested parishioners meet Saturdays at 1pm for discussion and prayer.
The Gabriel Project is a parish-based ministry organized to support pregnant mothers and their unborn babies. A parish volunteer meets with the woman and makes an assessment of her needs. Some of her needs might be: help with prenatal registration, emotional support, maternity clothing, baby items or just a friendly presence in her life.
The parish community is encouraged to support the Project either by becoming a volunteer and working with the woman during her pregnancy or by contributing material items as needed. For more information, please click here.
If you have been thinking that you would like to learn more about the Catholic Faith and/or feel that God has been leading you in this direction, classes are offered regularly for adults seeking Baptism, Confirmation or full admission into the Church (for those who have been previously baptized in another Christian Community). Sessions begin in September.
