St. Agnes is the Patroness of our school who is a model of all that is pure and beautiful to the students of St. Agnes School. Indeed a wealthy Roman maiden who chose to be faithful to God in spite of all that the world offered her to give up her purity and personal integrity. Agnes is depicted in art with a lamb, evoking her name which resembles the Latin word for lamb, agnus which means “chaste, pure”. She’s also known with a martyr’s palm. She is the patron saint of young girls.
We have adopted her Motto “GOD IS MY STRENGTH” in order that the students may be inspired to choose the hard right against the easy wrong in times of conflict and temptation to yield to the allurements of this world.
