St. Agnes & Sacred Heart Discipleship Leaders
"Christian hope sustains us in committing ourselves fully to the new evangelization and to the worldwide mission, and leads us to pray as Jesus taught us: “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” – Saint John Paul II
The mission of faith formation at St. Agnes & Sacred Heart is to help our parishioners experience an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ, to grow in knowledge of him, and to surrender to him more deeply. We seek to accompany others in nurturing an ongoing conversion to Christ and His Church.
