1894 ~ Established as a Parish --- 1957 ~ Named a Cathedral
A Message from our Rector

Welcome to the Internet Site of the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Agnes Cathedral.  

 Our parish is made up of over 5,300 households ranging from single people to families who are just starting out to those who have called the Parish of St. Agnes "home" for a number of generations.

Hopefully, the various features of the site, some of which include descriptions of  the various ministries and organizations, the history of the parish and virtual tour of the Cathedral, will enable you to know more about the parish if you are already a parishioner or give you a sense of us if you are just "visiting".

Please let us know if we can be of service to you.  May God bless you and love you!

Monsignor William E. Koenig

Click HERE for an Aerial view of the work being done on the exterior of the Cathedral

With gratitude for everyone who has given a gift, we are now being asked to complete the work on the exterior of the Cathedral. You are asked, if your means allow, to consider once again or for the first time to help our parish at this time of need to raise $650,000 (which again the Bishop has offered to match).
If you have made a pledge to the original campaign, you are asked to consider extending your pledge.
If you gave a one-time gift, you are asked to consider giving another gift.
If you have not previously given a gift to help in this parish project, you are asked to consider giving a gift now, helping us meet this need.
As always, if your present circumstances do not permit you to help us financially meet this need, your prayers for the success of our efforts would be a great gift in itself.

" ... the Church needs genuine witnesses for the new evangelization: men and women whose lives have been transformed by meeting with Jesus, men and women who are capable of communicating this experience to others. The Church needs saints. All are called to holiness, and holy people alone can renew humanity."

Pope John Paul II
August 2004

A Crisis of Faith in our World

It is clear that our society is in the midst of a culture war. More than ever, people need God, but sadly, many have lost sight of the treasures of the Catholic faith.
