Bishop Murphy has asked us to take some time to get to know St. Agnes, the Patroness of the Diocese of Rockville Centre and the Patroness of Youth. He has shared a letter that he wrote from his heart many years ago about his connection to St. Agnes. In school, we have been hearing excerpts from the letter so that we can learn about her life, her struggles and her triumphs. We are also gaining a personal insight into Bishop Murphy's spiritual connection to St. Agnes.
During school on January 11th, our student body will say a prayer in remembrance of St. Agnes.
On January 21, we will celebrate Mass with Bishop Murphy at the Cathedral in honor of this special feast day.
I am attaching a copy of the letter for you to read. I found the letter to be spiritually uplifting. I hope that you may have a similar experience.
