1917, the school, after ninety-nine years, continues to provide a
spiritually rich and challenging academic program for Catholic children
in grades K-8. The commitment of clergy, administrators, faculty, staff

by the United States Department of Education as a National School of
Excellence and accreditation by the Middle States Association for
Colleges and Schools.
With an enrollment of over 700 students, St. Agnes
Cathedral School is the largest K-8 Parish elementary school in the

Jesus, be our Hope!
Lord, our God, we praise you for your Son, Jesus Christ: He is Emmanuel,
the HOPE of all people. He is the wisdom that teaches and guides us. He is the
Savior of every nation. Lord God, let your blessings come upon us as we pray this Advent. May our
prayers be a sign of our faith to You. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
As we enter the First Week of Advent, the
students will be completing good deeds and performing acts of kindness. After a
good deed or kind act is completed, the student will write it on a strip of
paper and place it in a class container. At the end of the week a
representative from the class will bring the container filled with the good
deeds and acts of kindness to the office where they will be placed in the
school’s crèche, creating the bedding for the Baby Jesus with their good deeds
and acts of kindness.
