Welcome to Saint Monica Catholic Church

"Eucharistic Fed, Spirit Led"

Saint Monica Catholic Church

Across our website you will undoubtedly find much information intended to help visitors both learn about our parish and her many activities and ministries, as well as our faith in Jesus Christ as we live it in the Catholic Church.  St. Monica Church has much for which to be grateful, for the Lord has richly blessed each of our members and through them, the parish and wider community. 

Visit with us for a while, and come to see just how good the Lord is!

May God bless you!  Peace!



While our parish staff & volunteers will attempt to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, parishioners and guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 anytime they enter a public space since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infection.

(We do follow all current CDC and Archdiocese of Chicago recommendations including social distancing, wearing masks over the mouth & nose while inside the church, and hand sanitizing upon entering the church and before receiving Holy Communion.)
