St. Agnes Men’s Club was started by 5 men more than 25 years ago. We have since grown to nearly 50 members strong. Our mission is very consistent with the St. Agnes Parish’s mission statement. We are a faith-based spiritual and social organization charged with helping with many parish activities such as the Lenten fish fry and the annual bazaar where we help set up/tear down, man the dice booth and contribute a “basket” auction prize. Additionally, we show our commitment to the unborn as we install over 400 wooden crosses each May (see below) to symbolize the victims of abortion (we also lend these crosses to other parishes). We contribute financially to various parish causes and help with special projects. Although canceled due to COVID the past two years, we were regular participants at St. Emma’s weekend retreats for men (see photos from 2019 here).
We are probably best known for our delicious cinnamon rolls! The preparing, baking, icing and selling of these rolls provides great fellowship among our members. Proceeds from the sales are used to fund our mission.
However, we are not all work and no play. We do gather socially for the Men’s Club picnic (families invited), a brunch after our annual memorial mass for our deceased members on the first Sunday of November (guests invited) and a Steeler Tailgate Party in Resurrection Hall. Our Men’s club is a great way to connect with our parish with minimal time commitment as we only have one annual planning meeting in January. Annual dues are only $10.00. WE ARE SEEKING NEW MEMBERS, specifically younger men to bring new ideas to the club and keep the tradition alive. All men are welcome.
