Archbishop Gomez has dispensed the obligation for Sunday mass until further notice.
A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby
September 17 is the Feast of the Stigmata of St. Francis when the saint of Assisi received the wound of Christ in his hands, feet, and side. In 1804 Fr. Estevan Tapis, OFM, chose this feast as the founding day for our own mission, dedicated to Saint Agnes. Over 216 years the people of Santa Inés have looked to both St. Agnes and St. Francis for their example of how to live dedication to God and loving service to others.
Seek the LORD while he may be found, call him while he is near. People are worried about how many may come back to mass when this pandemic subsides. My concern is how we can help each other find the Lord now, for He is near to us even if we need to practice social distancing. Please let me know, however, in what ways we may help you make the transition back to live church on Sundays when we are able to do that.
May the Lord bless and keep us always! St. Francis and St. Agnes, pray for us! Fr. Bobby

"Keep your eyes fixed on the outstretched arms of Christ crucified, let yourself be saved over and over again." Pope Francis
"Jesus keeps knocking on our doors, the doors of our lives. He doesn't do this by magic, with special effects, with flashing lights and fireworks. Jesus keeps knocking on our door in the faces of our brothers and sisters, in the faces of our neighbors, in the faces of those at our side." Pope Francis
@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
