We joyfully invite all women of Saint Agnes to join the Altar and Rosary Society and receive the spiritual and social benefits offered to its members. Come join us to pray for and serve our beloved Church of Saint Agnes!We meet on the first Wednesday of most months. We begin by praying the rosary in the chapel at 4:50 PM, continue by attending 5:15 PM Mass and then serve refreshments in Schuler Hall where we have time to relax and enjoy each other's company. We then hold our business meeting which typically lasts about an hour (Bible study sometimes occurs before the Society meeting). As an Altar and Rosary Society member, you will have the chance to meet and serve Saint Agnes parishioners during our annual Advent Bake Sale in December and Ice Cream Social in August, as well as serving at our monthly coffee, donut and egg sandwich Sundays and the Fall Festival. In addition to these parish social events, members of the Altar and Rosary society assist with many other important roles caring for the precious articles used on and around the altar. These tasks include weekly cleaning of the upper church and chapel, laundering and care of altar linens, sewing new altar linens, repairing existing linens and vestments, and baking Eucharistic breads.
Just come to say the Rosary, offer Mass, and meet the Altar and Rosary Society at one of our monthly meetings. You can visit and learn more and sign up right there. For more information, please contact our Membership Chair, Joy Steveken, by clicking on the button below.
