Over 1,200 people packed St. Agnes Cathedral for the liturgy, which was attended by Dr. Kathleen Walsh, Superintendent of schools, members of the Department of Education, school principals, and students and families from all over Long Island, in addition to the St. Agnes parishioners. Students from the schools participated in the Mass in a special way and posed for pictures with Bishop Murphy. The students wore their uniforms to represent their school. Bishop Murphy spoke about St. Agnes in his homily. The Mass was also broadcast on Telecare on Sunday, January 22.
The Mass was a culmination of "St. Agnes Month," during which students have learned about and prayed to our patroness. All schools honored St. Agnes in a special way on Wednesday, January 11.
