On behalf of the pastor, staff, and entire parish community, we’d like to extend a warm welcome.

St. Agnes Catholic Church is located in the historic town of Shepherdstown, WV—the oldest town (1743) in West Virginia. There has been a Catholic presence here since 1795. Our Church building, dedicated in 2008, reflects St. Agnes’ history and core beliefs. The design displays a spirit of hospitality as the church exterior opens its arms to the broader community.

St. Agnes Mission

St. Agnes is an inclusive Catholic community dedicated to the love of God and service to others. We rejoice in the Gospel, the celebration of the Liturgy, and the Sacraments. We welcome the opportunity to share God’s message and to bring all others into the life of Christ.

If you are Catholic and new to the area or looking for a church, we invite you to register with the parish so we may serve you more effectively. If you would like more information or would like to talk with someone, please let us know by sending an email or calling the office.

To learn more about our Church, feel free to call the office, or join us on any Saturday or Sunday so you can participate in our liturgy.

There’s a wondrous world of life and love awaiting you…and people here in the parish are eager to introduce you to it!
