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.

Our Mission


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."

Thank You


My sincere thanks to the many parishioners who reached out in support, offering their well wishes, as I’ve endeavoured to rest and recover in isolation over this last week, having tested positive to COVID-19 last Sunday morning. My thanks to Fr Peter Matheson who helped with the liturgies at OLA, with practically no notice. To Fr Laurie McNamara and Fr Barry Tobin who, in my absence, are assisting where they can with liturgies across both parishes. I’m very mindful that a number of people have been or are currently unwell, as a consequence of this insidious virus, and my prayers, as I’m sure your prayers, are with them. Currently a number of our parish volunteers and some members of staff are unwell and isolating. Thank you sincerely to Vino Krishnan in the Parish Office, who has done a sterling job managing all number of parish related matters, including helping to coordinate arrangements for several funerals over this time. My thanks too, to the principals and staff of both parishes’ schools, for their support and care. My hope is that I’ll be ‘back in the saddle’ in this week ahead, once I’ve met all the regulatory requirements. Again thank you for kind thoughts and prayerful support. God bless, Fr Alan
