Mrs. Cecilia St. John
You, Agnes, followed Christ, even to death. Teach us to love Him as you loved Him; to witness to Him as you did, with courage; to put love for Him before our own lives; to renounce the idols presented to us by society; to risk everything in response to His fidelity.
St. Agnes, pray for us!

Oldies But Goodies:
The school’s water was tested a few months ago. The results came back and indicated that one fixture in the Newman Kitchen exceeded the NYS DOH’s action level of lead of 15 ppb. That fixture has been labeled “Not for Drinking or Cooking” and will be shut off. The complete report is embedded below. The use of water bottles is no longer necessary.
If you have not sent in your re-registration form and fee for the 2017-18 school year, please do so as soon as possible.
