Bishop John O. Barres celebrated the Feast of St. Agnes at the 5 p.m. vigil mass  January 20 at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre, joined by many school-age children from across the diocese. It was Bishop Barres’ first observance of the feast of the diocese’s patron since being installed as its bishop last January 31. Bishop Barres said that the future of Catholic education in the diocese is intimately locked with the attendance at Sunday mass by Catholic school families.  Photos by Ed Casey.
