Welcome, and thank you for visiting St Agnes' Catholic Church, Highett online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

MESSAGE FROM FR JOHN O'REILLY
To all the parishioners of St Agnes,
It saddens me greatly, like you, to go into the most solemn period of our Christian life and then into Christ’s Resurrection unable to pray and celebrate together. In my daily Mass, I pray for the parish and school families and for a quick end to the Coronavirus pandemic.
I urge you to participate in Holy Week as you would normally do with fasting, prayer and charity and attend Mass live-streamed from St Patrick’s Cathedral or any other Mass of your choice.
Finally, GOD bless you and your family. Please take care, keep safe.
Fr John O’Reilly
