St. Agnes, one of the earliest Roman martyrs, was put to death at a very young age (12 or 13) around 305 AD.
She is usually portrayed holding a lamb, which signifies her innocence. Also, her name sounds like the Latin word for lamb, "agnus." The palm branch in her hand is a symbol of her victory as a virgin martyr, remaining faithful to Christ unto death.
Each year on St. Agnes' feast day, Jan. 21, the Pope blesses two lambs. Their shorn wool is used to make the white woolen stole called a pallium, which is worn by archbishops.
Here's a video of Pope Benedict XVI blessing two adorable little lambs, who wear flower wreaths in honor of St. Agnes. Listen carefully and you'll hear one greet the Pope with a bleat the moment he steps into the room.
Mariana Dalsass welcomes guests to the St. Ann & St. Paul Parish Picnic at Marydell.
June 28 -- The people of St. Ann’s and St. Paul’s came together as one family on Saturday, June 18, for the annual parish picnic. As one parish we celebrated mass and enjoyed each other’s company in the beautiful setting of the Marydell Faith and Life Center in Upper Nyack. Over 180 people attended. Three of our priests – pastor Fr. Vladimir and Frs. Roman and Raj -- concelebrated the outdoor Mass with the assistance of Deacon Dominic Buonocore, our Children's Choir led by Janet Fenton, and altar servers Gianna Tangredi and Jack Gannon.
The festivities continued through the afternoon and evening with Bryan Guzman of Amazing Grace Circus teaching our young people how to juggle and walk the tight wire! There were games for everyone, and we even had a pie-eating contest organized by Joni Tangredi. Joe Gannon came in first place!
Our delicious menu – hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecued chicken and all the fixin’s -- was prepared and served by Jack Bozeat, Marie Lorenzini, and their team. Old-time music filled the air compliments of Peter and Mary Ann Partridge and their gang of players! The day could not end without the many desserts crafted by Jay Conklin, and our bonfire blazed thanks to Tom Sullivan.
The perfect June weather crowned a day filled with fun, laughter, and new friends from our joined churches. Thanks to all who attended and made the day possible!!

June 23 -- The Saint Ann's Rosary Altar Society held their annual dinner at Rick's Club American in Congers on June 9. Deacon Luke Conroy joined the Rosarians, who gathered to enjoy each other's company and celebrate the closing of their year.
We've created a special 'Rosary Altar Society' page to feature this group, whose prayers and good works have brought so many blessings to St. Ann's over the years. Please click here to check it out. Or you can find it under the "Ministries" tab. There are more photos of the dinner event there.
