    NEW PARISH APP COMING SOON!

    In the coming weeks St. Agnes will launch 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. Please watch for our official launch announcement!

Sacrament of Baptism

     The Sacrament of Baptism is the fist step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship.  Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

     Baptism takes place following the 10 AM Mass on scheduled Sundays.  Parents must be registered / active parishioners for three months prior to Baptism.  Diocesan guidelines require that parents attend a preparation session prior to the Sacrament.  Baptism Registration form and Baptism Guidelines are available or you can call (413) 446-1240 to speak with Mrs. Stankiewicz.

Sacrament of Confirmation

     Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

     Additional information can be found on our Home page under "Office of Faith Formation".

Sacrament of Matrimony

     The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person.  It is also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.
