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.

WITH GRATITUDE

Many thanks to all Parishioners of St. Agatha Parish, Friends, Guests and Visitors for their testimony to faith, profession of faith and prayer with us during Advent and Christmas Seasons. Cordial Thanks also for all Christmas and New Year Cards and all kind words, wishes and gifts. May God reward all goodness with His blessing.

 

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

For the new calendar year, we would like to invite everyone to more frequent participation in the Holy Eucharist, to rediscover the role and presence of Our Lady, the Mother of Jesus, whose copy of the famous picture of Jasna Góra in Czestochowa, Poland, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help is in our Church, and also to increase your devotion to St. Joseph and St. Agatha.

 

JANUARY - MONTH OF THE HOLY NAME OF JESUS

The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. "In the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth and under the earth" (Phil 2:10). Christ's name is chosen in heaven, and the Angel Gabriel announces it when he informs the Blessed Virgin of the incarnation: "Behold thou shall conceive in thy womb and shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name Jesus". It is a name that has marvelous implications, for it means "savior." The name of Jesus is the sweetest of all names, and He who bears it is most worthy of all love. He who calls Jesus his friend can be assured that this friend is the most devoted and unselfish of all friends.

Jesus is our all. In His name we may pray to the Father with assurance of being heard. In His name the Church administers all her sacraments. In His name she offers all her prayers and blesses homes, the fields, and the sick. In the name of Jesus she casts out evil spirits, and at the hour of our death bids us, "Go forth, Christian soul." She assures us that whoever shall call upon this name will be saved. When our soul has departed this life to seek its eternal home, the Church asks in the name of Jesus, "Eternal rest give unto him, O Lord."

 

ST. AGATHA’S PATRONAL FEAST DAY ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2023

Our celebration will be held on Sunday, February 5 (Masses 8:00 AM in English and 10:00 AM in Polish). The Parish Feast Day observance is an occasion to learn more about our Patron, Saint Agatha. It is also a wonderful opportunity for the parish family to evaluate what has been done in the past, with a commitment for renewal, to make the community even better.  It is also a fitting occasion for prayers to be offered for the souls of the departed Parish Pastors, benefactors, founding members, parishioners and volunteers who have served diligently in the past century and decades.
