ST. AGNES PARISH MISSION "THE THREE CHALLENGES OF JESUS"
For more than 2000 years, three challenges have confronted the followers of Christ. They form the essence of Jesus' life and teaching and have set the standard for holiness down through the centuries. Over 3 nights, Fr. Albert Haase, O.F.M. will lead us in a parish mission. We will explore how to trust and surrender when life is not going our way, how to forgive when hurts and grudges consume us, and how to live an authentic Eucharistic life of self-giving love.

Parishes across our diocese will embark on the 2015 Annual Catholic Services Appeal - which funds the various office ministries and services affered by our diocesan church of Springfield in Illinois.
