Re: Rel. Ed. Classes Grades 1-10


Please check this Religious Education Home Page and your local News Channles 5 & 7 for any announcements regarding class cancellations due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances (icy roads) during our winter season.  Please plan on St. Agnes Parish religious classes being cancelled when the town of reading closes schools due to poor weather.  As always we ask you to use your own parental discretion when traveling during these winter months regradless of classes being cancelled.  Safety is our priority!
