Ascension Day

Thursday, May 5th

Thursday, May 5th is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord into heaven and is a Holy Day of Obligation.  Jesus commissions His Apostles to baptize in His name, reminding them that He is always present through His Spirit.  Having ascended to His Father amid cries of gladness, we are His witnesses for we have been gifted with His Spirit of wisdom and revelation.  Saint Agnes will be on a Holy Day Mass Schedule.  If you cannot make Mass here at Agnes, we urge you to attend Mass wherever you are able to.

On the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, Saint Agnes will offer Masses at

11:40 AM, 12:10 PM, 12:40 PM, 1:10 PM, 1:40 PM,
