Give THANKS to the Lord for He is good!
St. Agnes Parish will celebrate Mass on Thanksgiving Day at 9:00am. Although NOT a Holy Day of obligation, what better way to say "Thank You" to God for all that He does for us. Put God first. The rest will fall into place. All parishioners are highly encouraged to attend. Our main celebrant this year is Archbishop John Favalora.


CHRISTMAS WREATHS


The CYO is taking orders for Christmas Wreaths. This year, due to several requests, Christmas door swags and Christmas table centerpieces will be available in limited quantities. Wreaths, Swags and Centerpieces are all
made fresh and decorated by members of the CYO. Order online, or by order form which are located
on line or at the entrances of church.

Order forms and payments can be mailed to the Rectory office, or placed in the collection baskets at Mass.
(Please put form and payment in an envelope marked “wreath sale’).
Items will be distributed at the December Coffee and Donuts.
