The purpose of our website is three-fold: inspiration, information and evangelization-spreading the Word of God beyond our boundaries to the whole world.
Parish Mission Statement
We, the faithful of Saint Monica Parish, joyfully celebrating the 100th anniversary of our parish, proclaim our faith in God our Father and we pledge to continue the mission of His Son in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Looking forward to the year 2000 marking the birth of Jesus Christ we recognize that as members of His body we are called to minister to one another in the parish community, as well as to those around us. We therefore commit ourselves to be:
- A community that worships God by encouraging the faithful to attend daily mass as well as Sunday Mass and to actively participate in all parish liturgies.
- A community that nourishes Christian life by encouraging frequent reception of the sacraments, fostering parish spirit, and the working together of all parish societies and organizations.
- A community that seeks to strengthen family life as a privileged locale for encountering God, and encouraging parents to continue that encounter through the parochial school and a Catholic secondary school.
- A community that teaches the message of Christ by reaching out to all within the parish community: young and old, Catholic and non-Catholic, churched and non-churched, through example and through the efforts of the Evangelization Committee already active in the parish.
- A community that serves those in need by visiting the home-bound on a bi-monthly basis, by affording the sick the opportunity to receive the Eucharist more often, and by the St. Vincent de Paul Society ministering to the temporal needs of those in want.
We implore the blessing of God, through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our Mother, and through Saint Monica, our patroness. May God strengthen our resolve to leave a legacy of faith and a spirit of mission to our children.
