Saint Agnes: Martyred at 13 – honored forevermore

Imagine being so fervent in your faith that you are willing to die for it. Imagine being 13 years old. Saint Agnes held fast to her Christian beliefs and was martyred in 304 AD. Her feast day is celebrated on January 21. In Rome, it is a moving tradition that attracts a large flock of faithful and two baby lambs who have been specially chosen to symbolize Saint Agnes and Jesus, the lamb of God. Join us for this celebration:
