How to make a mini Rosary with your child at home
Please see the Feast Day 2020 – Rosary Assembly Instructions for a simple and familiar craft you can do at home with your children. We made these mini rosaries at school as part of our St. Agnes Feast Day 2020. This is a very meaningful activity and it will help your child stay connected to their faith at home while we cannot access the parish and the school. As we continue our Lenten journey, Father Aleks encourages us to pray the Rosary every night at 8pm alongside him from our homes.
All public Masses in the church at St. Agnes are suspended. However, Father Aleks is going to celebrate Mass each weekday (Monday – Friday) evening at 7 PM, and on the weekend (Saturday & Sunday) at 10 AM.
It is accessible through video using ZOOM (can be loaded on your phone, tablet, or desktop) and clicking on this link: https://zoom.us/j/5053488770
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please “mute” your microphone when Mass begins and stay muted until Mass has concluded.
Please join us five minutes early to ensure that you have a little time to work out any kinks.
You could also try it at any time, and if you see a message that states “Please wait for the host to start this meeting”, your system should be ready for Mass! For watching the video on your smartphone you need first to install the Zoom Cloud Meeting app.

From Father Aleks:
It is with a heavy heart that I will not be able to celebrate the Holy Mass with you. Please be assured that you are all in my prayers and I will offer Mass for you each day. We are still united as a parish through our prayers and I encourage parishioners to pray the Rosary at 8:00 pm every day, along with me, from your homes. We pray for one another, especially those who may contract this virus, and for the health care workers who have dedicated themselves to assisting those who are ill. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society volunteers are still serving the people in need.
While we are all currently concerned about the situation around us, we keep on going through the Lenten season. We focus on Christ, carrying the cross to Calvary, knowing that the final station is not the grave but the glory of the resurrection. Our faith, our love of God and each other are NOT SUSPENDED. I believe that our commitment to God and to Church will be stronger than ever before.
Saint Agnes, pray for us!
Saint Vincent Pallotti, pray for us!
Yours in Christ,
