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.
The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "Christian initiation is accomplished by means of the sacraments which establish the foundations of Christian life. The faithful born anew by Baptism are strengthened by Confirmation and are then nourished by the Eucharist."

Australian Catholic University Centre for Liturgy is proud to present an online public lecture by Monsignor Professor Kevin W. Irwin on “Liturgy and Sacraments in a COVID World: Renewal not Restoration”. Monsignor Irwin held the Walter J. Schmitz Chair of Liturgical Studies (2000-2015) at Catholic University of America where he is currently an Ordinary Research Professor and where he has previously served as Dean of the School of Theology and Religious Studies (2005-2011). He is the author of over twenty books and seventy journal articles. Here is a description of the lecture topic: Restrictions on in-person worship during the pandemic have challenged parishes to find other ways to connect through the use of technology. While some successful innovations have emerged during this period, some problematic liturgical practices have also been uncovered which indicate that further work is still needed in many places to implement Vatican II’s liturgical reforms fully. Kevin Irwin’s analysis of the current situation will highlight a positive path forward. The public lecture will run from 10am-11:30am AEST via Zoom. If you would like to register go to:
