About Us

Mission Statement

We, the people of St. Agnes Parish, Sellersville, in communion with our Holy Father, Shepherd of the Universal Church and our Archbishop, Shepherd of the Church in Philadelphia, proclaim to everyone the Good News that Jesus Christ, the Light of the world, offers to all who follow Him the light of life.

Baptized into Christ Jesus and confirmed by the gift of the Holy Spirit, we desire to share this Light with all by proclaiming the Gospel of forgiveness and reconciliation to every person.

We recognize our call to grow as a faith community.  We accept the privilege and the challenge of this call.

We are a community that worships God by:

  1. Fostering a more active participation in the Sunday Liturgy by emphasizing the Liturgy of the Word as well as the Liturgy of the Eucharist, by emphasizing the celebration of Liturgy leading to living the Christian life every day.
  1. Fostering a more intense personal religious life through prayer groups, private devotions, recitation of the Rosary, Liturgy of the Hours and prayerful reading of the Scriptures.

We create and nourish Christian community by recognizing and respecting of the individual gifts and needs of one another, thereby building a family of Christian families: The Parish.  We are a community that proclaims the Good News by our actions as well as our words, which expresses our faith in Our Lord, Jesus Christ, to all whose lives we touch.

We are a community that teaches the message of Christ by continuing to expand and improve our religious education programs for all age groups through Scripture, Church History, Liturgy, Sacraments and Christian Morality.

We are a community that serves those in need by ministering to both the physical and spiritual needs of the members of our local community and the universal family.

We pray to God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, and St. Agnes, our patroness, to guide us in advancing the mission of Christ and His Church on earth.
