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."

PETER’S PENCE COLLECTION
There will be a special collection for the intentions of the Holy Father this weekend. The Peter’s Pence offerings are designated to support the Holy Father’s apostolic and charitable activities in favour of the universal Church and the entire world. Helping the Holy Father exercise his universal mission, you join with others across the world in supporting urgent projects including emergency assistance to those in need due to natural disasters, communities impacted by coronavirus, conflict, oppression and disease. Our generosity allows the Holy Father to respond to those suffering with love and compassion. Each donation, small or large, also has a powerful symbolic value – it is a concrete sign of communion with the Holy Father.
