On Sunday, Jan. 27, The Historic St. Agnes Episcopal church observed its Annual Patronal celebration and the 115th anniversary of the parish. Significantly, the theme A New Era has Begun/Moving Forward with Family in Faith, recognizes new leadership as the Reverend Father Denrick Rolle continues to move forward as the parishs new rector. Through the combined efforts of the parish family, friends and community leaders, over $50,000 was raised in honor of the retirement of former rector, The Reverend Father Richard L. Marquess-Barry. The funds were distributed among Florida Memorial University, Bethune-Cookman University, Edward Waters College and Saint Augustines University as contributions to the United Negro College Fund in honor of Barry.
