Often we are asked, who is Saint Agnes? According to tradition, Agnes was a beautiful girl, about 12 or 13 years old, who refused marriage, stating that she could have no spouse but Jesus Christ. Her suitors revealed her Christianity, which was then condemned as a cult, and in punishment she was exposed in a brothel. Awed by her purity and presence, all but one of the Roman youths left her untouched; in his attempt to violate her, the sole attacker was miraculously struck blind, whereupon Agnes healed him with prayer.
Saint Agnes Foundation of North Georgia Angel House therefore, is named after Agnes. We recognize that young girls are often condemned by those who don’t recognize signs of abuse. We encourage our girls to continue to have faith in a positive outcome despite the hardships of today.
The Saint Agnes Foundation of North Georgia Angel House is the fundraising side of the North Georgia Angel House, Inc. 100% of our funds directly sustain the day to day operations and care of our girls. Consider making a tax-free deduction to us today!
