ST. AGNES - MY PARISH APP!

                   

THE NEW PARISH APP IS HERE!

St. Agnes is launching our own app for iPhone and Android smart phones. This will allow us to better communicate with you throughout the week and keep you updated with relevant parish news or updates. The app is very well designed and very intuitive. It will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily Mass readings, Catholic news and prayers, convenient prayer and Confession reminders, our bulletins and more. We hope for our new app to be a tool for fostering stronger parish life at St. Agnes and better engaging the New Evangelization. The links are on our home page and will take you to the marketplace appstore where they can download the myParish app.  Your feedback as we move forward with this new exciting tool is greatly appreciated.  Please let us know your thoughts!

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.
