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."

THE SEASON OF CREATION.
In today’s Gospel, the rich man fails to hear the Cry of the Poor and misses the opportunity to help the poor man Lazarus. On this 4th week of the Season of Creation, we remember that the Cry of the Poor and the Cry of the Earth are inextricably linked. When we, the rich nations, abuse Mother Earth and her resources, it is the poor nations who are disproportionately affected and who suffer the most. Let’s take some time to slow down every day to feel, experience and connect with the awe and wonder of the natural world. Paying attention to, and caring for, the plants and wildlife that live around us is a form of prayer, a communion with God through the Earth. Let’s listen to the voice of creation. May it transform our hearts and minds toward greater love of God, each other, and creation. Let us act in ways that nurture communion through healing and renewing our common home. Together, let us play our part in the protection and restoration of Mother Earth.
