St. Paul and St. Agnes Parish greatly values your presence among us, whether you attend Mass exclusively here or also at other churches, or whether you attend Mass weekly, frequently, or periodically.
We strongly emphasize what contemporary liturgists call the Ministry of the Assembly. We urge you to pray attentively in the Mass by singing God’s praises loudly, by listening attentively to the Word of God, and by praying silently the Eucharistic prayer as the priest celebrant prays it aloud. You will discover that God will transform you and others through your participation in the mysteries of the Mass.
May your experience of the liturgy here bring you lasting peace!
We hope everyone is having a happy, healthy Advent season. Our Christmas and New Year’s Mass schedule is below. Whether you come here regularly or not, we very much hope that you will join us for Mass this Christmas season.

Have you heard the bells of St. Agnes ringing lately?
Thanks to the persistence of Lena Lopresti, who donated the carillon system years ago, and to the Strano family, who paid to have the system restored in memory of Anthony Strano on the sixth anniversary of his passing, the bells of St. Agnes are ringing again.
The neighborhood response has been mostly positive. We even received a shout out in a local blog. The blogger even recorded and posted a video of the carillon playing.
Beginning in September, we now have a Mass celebrated in French at St. Agnes, every Sunday at 11 a.m. Whether you are from France, are learning French or just curious to experience Mass in French, we welcome you to join us!
