St. Agnes School is an expression of faith, hope and love of the parish community. Children experience this commitment in every aspect of the environment and curriculum. Our goal is to teach Jesus in word and example, to build community and to serve. Catholic education helps young people grow in service to God, Church, the community and one another.
The faculty, staff and students share their faith through words, deeds and by being living examples of their faith to the best of their ability. Teachers and students experience liturgical worship through regular participation in the Eucharistic celebration and other parish worship services. Christian service is practiced by creating an atmosphere where the sacredness of life is respected and by reaching out to the needy through various service projects. St. Agnes School creates an integrated educational and religious environment where Christian values are discovered and strengthened during a child's natural growth. The members of St. Agnes School grow in their understanding of faith through regular reading and studying of the sacred scripture.
Mass is celebrated by the students on a weekly basis. The Mass liturgy is prepared and presented by each class on a rotating basis. St. Agnes students choose the weekly theme, select the readings, and special prayers, and participate in the celebration. Special prayer services for Advent and Lent are held in addition to liturgies on special feast days.
