First Sunday of Lent - February 21, 2021Primer Domingo de Cuaresma - 21 de Febrero, 2021

Dear St. Agnes Community,

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I share with you that the PK-3 Classroom project will begin next week! Yes, the construction of our new elementary school wing will start with the mobilization and fencing around the current basketball court area and part of the field.

As many of you know, we have chosen Vilar-Hoynack as the lead contractor and we are thrilled to be working with their prestigious and experienced team to help bring our vision to life. Vilar-Hoynack has experience working on active campuses, they have developed and will implement a thorough safety program.

Please be aware that the basketball court will now be off limits, and the area will be cordoned off for construction vehicles, materials, and other equipment. The safety and security of our children continues to be a priority and we ask for your cooperation during this time. Please follow the signs and instructions in the coming days, weeks, and months to come.

Like with any exciting and major initiative, we will need to be patient. Our current campus will be disrupted, workers will be present while we continue the construction. Meanwhile, we will ensure that the highest level of security and safety precautions are being met.

I thank you for your prayers and support and will continue to pray for many blessings for you and your family.

Sincerely,
Fr. JC.

I am love and mercy itself (...) Come then with trust to draw graces from this fountain.

To celebrate the year of Saint Joseph, we will have a special bilingual mass and Holy Rosary on the 19th of every month at 12:00 PM.

The Holy season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday, February 17th. Both Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, April 2nd, are days of abstinence from meat for all who are 14 years and older.

They are also days of fast (one full meal and two small meals, with nothing eating between meals) for adults from 18 to 59 years of age.

All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat for those 14 years and older.

"The Rosary is the best therapy for these distraught, unhappy, fearful, and frustrated souls, precisely because it involves the simultaneous use of three powers: the physical, the vocal, and the spiritual, and in that order."
Archbishop Fulton Sheen

"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
Hebrews 13:2

"Angels Unawares" sculpture on display in Miami.

A traveling bronze, life-sized sculpture entitled “Angels Unawares” is now on display at Miami’s Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., until April 8.

Pope Francis unveiled the original sculpture, created by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz, in St. Peter’s Square on Sept. 29, 2019, the 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees.

Like the original, the replica weighs 3.5 tons and is 20-feet long. It features indige-nous people, Jews fleeing Nazi Germany, Joseph, Mary and Jesus, people from war-torn countries, and Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, patroness of immigrants, among many others. Above the 140 refugees crowded on the raft are the wings of an angel, a reference to the sculpture’s name and to the New Testament’s Hebrews 13:2: “Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels una-wares.”
