About Us

Welcome to the Parish of St. Paul and St. Agnes! Located in one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant neighborhoods, our parish of two historic churches brings together people from diverse backgrounds into one community rooted in the Gospel. We hope you will discover at the Parish of St. Paul and St. Agnes a welcoming home where, nourished by Word and Sacrament, you can grow in the love of Christ. We invite you to join us for Mass in English, Spanish or French and consider the parish your own oasis of peace, calm and mercy.

Our Mission
Relying upon the Holy Spirit in all that we do, we, the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Paul and St. Agnes, invite all in our neighborhood to celebrate our common baptism in Jesus Christ:

  • as a priestly people – interceding for our loved ones and for our world at Mass.
  • as a prophetic people – proclaiming the Word of God in a dialogue with our neighbors.
  • as a royal people – building up the Kingdom of God through our lives of humble service.
