Saint Agnes

stagnes

The patron saint, Agnes, was a young girl who refused to abandon her practice of the Christian faith and therefore suffered death at the time of the Diocletion persecution.   Agnes is depicted in art with a lamb, as her name resembles the Latin word for "lamb", agnus. The name "Agnes" is actually derived from the feminine Greek adjective "hagnē"  meaning "chaste, pure, sacred".  St. Agnes Church celebrates its Patronal Festival on the Sunday nearest to the 21st January.
