Although the formal feast day of St. Agnes, is on Wednesday, January 21, the Parish of St. Agnes in St. Paul will be celebrating its patronal feast on this Sunday, tomorrow, at the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Being it is the third Sunday of the Month, the Mass will be celebrated in the Extraordinary Form (Tridentine). Prizes will be given to those who can come close to guessing the number of alter servers present at the Mass.
From their bulletin of last week: We are very privileged to celebrate the Feast of our patroness Saint Agnes next weekend at all the Masses. Again this year, I have invited all our altar servers to attend the 10:00 a.m. Latin Mass as a magnificent way to specially honor them on our Feast day. For others, this might be a good opportunity to see first hand a Mass in the Extraordinary Form, especially for those who may regularly attend a different Sunday Mass. We have so much for which to be grateful in our parish. Let us gather in praise and Thanksgiving.
The Mass will be accompanied by orchestra, chorale and schola and will be Charles Gounod's Saint Cecilia Mass.
