What a spectacular week we had! The school was buzzing with events that showed the true meaning of St. Agnes. Although I have only been here 6 months, I am amazed at the spirit and generosity of the St. Agnes School Community. Here’s the week in review:
Monday and Tuesday: Sold Green and Gold tickets. The event was sold out!
Monday-Wednesday: Sold Green and Gold Beads. Every grade participated to support their favorite team.
Thursday: Green and Gold: Congratulations to the Gold Team. The night was a reflection of the meaning of good sportsmanship. As Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success”. Each team came together as a cohesive unit resulting in a successful evening of sports and creative expression.
Saturday: RVC St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Thank you to the students who walked in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade! You were fabulous and I appreciate your school spirit. It was a great time and I am already looking forward to it next year as we celebrate our 100th anniversary. Special shout out to Kieran Maelia, Fr. James, Mr. Sean O’Reilly and Mr. Dominick Davi for participating in St. Baldrick’s! God bless you!
Congratulations to Maeve Laurie for coming in 1st place in the DRVC Respect Life Contest for her winning video. Congratulations are also in order for the following students whose work was honored as finalists: Brooke Cassatto: Photography; Katie Swanson: Poetry; Alanna Mahar: Bookmark; Catrina Casella: Essay
Congratulations to the 7th Grade CYO Boys Basketball Team and their coaches, Mr. Profitlich and Mr. O’Brien, who finished their season undefeated with a record of 16-0. They were named the Nassau/Suffolk B Division Champions.

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.
Finally, St. Agnes Cathedral Parish has a Facebook page! Follow and like us at:

Embedded below is the link to the video of the Cathedral renovations. It was taped by a drone! Great footage and something to take a look at! St. Agnes is truly blessed to have such a beautiful building to pray and worship in.
