St. Agatha Parish exists primarily to serve the spiritual needs of those of the Polish language and ethnicity living in the St. Louis area.  We live our faith in union with the Supreme Pontiff and the Archbishop of St. Louis.  While living in American society, we celebrate our heritage of rich cultural traditions.  Through the intercession of Our Lady of Częstochowa, the Queen of Poland, and St. Agatha, the patron of our Parish, we seek to fulfill our calling in Jesus Christ by living out our Catholic faith in love, justice and peace.

Twenty-five years after Pope John Paul II’s visit to St. Louis, many Catholics, people of good will and the Polish Community reflect on his life, teaching and legacy. FEAST OF ST. AGATHA IS CELEBRATED ON FEB. 4 & 5
LET US PRAY FOR PEACE Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are Yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, “Peace to you” – please grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples on the earth become as brothers and sisters. May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all. Amen. Pope John Paul II MONTH OF MAY THE MONTH OF SPECIAL DEVOTION TO THE MOTHER OF GOD The month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. She is the Mother of the Church as well as the guide and inspiration to each one of us. Our Lady's influence on the world has always been great. She has lightened the burden of millions, brought peace and joy to tortured hearts, counsel to those in doubt, comfort to the sorrowing, repentance and mercy to sinners, and God to everyone who would accept Him. ST, JOSEPH THE WORKMAN This feast is celebrated on May 1st each year by the Catholic Church. It is set apart as a celebration of the life and work of St. Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ. The feast day of Saint Joseph the Workman has become an important day for Catholics around the world. It is a day to celebrate the dignity of work and the contributions that workers make to society. It is also a day to reflect on the example of Saint Joseph, who worked tirelessly to provide for his family and to serve God. MAY 3rd This is the Feast of Mary, Queen of Poland. Pope Pius XI designated this feast day to coincide with the civil holiday commemorating the Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791. On this occasion we pray for our Homeland. A celebration sponsored by Polish American Congress will be held on Sunday, May 5 at 10:00 AM. LITANY OF LORETO Our Lady never ceases to work for the conversion, sanctification and salvation of us all. In the Litany of the Blessed Virgin--also called the Litany of Loreto - we praise our Blessed Mother. MOTHER’S DAY – May 12 Each year, on the second Sunday of May, we celebrate Mother’s Day. Many countries around the world have a day in May to honor mothers. In Poland, Mother’s Day is on May 26. These days are truly special because they give tribute to these very special women in our lives who have brought us into the world and who have cared for us and nurtured us every day of our lives. THE SOLEMNITY OF PENTECOST – May 19 This final Sunday of the Easter season, celebrating what has been called the “birthday of the Church,” let us take the time to listen to the urgings of the Spirit, and to pray in gratitude for all that God has done and will yet do through this Church, God’s holy people. Today is the fiftieth day of Easter, a season marked with joy and gladness. In fire and wind, the Spirit of the Lord descends with God’s sevenfold gifts of wisdom and understanding, council (right judg¬ment), courage, knowledge and reverence (piety) and wonder (fear of the Lord).
