What is the PURA VIDA FOUNDATION?     See the photos of the site on our  Parish Outreach  page.  PURA VIDA is our St. Agnes Parish’s Parish Outreach project, to help women & youth at risk in Peru.  This initiative is a new and important undertaking by our parish, to share the gift of our resources with those far outside our direct community, desperately in need of generosity of those who can help.  Please donate whatever you are able to this worthy cause.  Click here for the background and how to donate – thank you!
