Message from Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C. - 03/21/2020


Notice of Mass Cancellation:

Bishop Jenky, in consultation with the Bishops of Illinois, has suspended all public Masses beginning this Saturday, March 14, 2020. There will be no Masses at St. Monica’s until further notice. May God Bless and protect us. 

Fr. John



One of the first tasks Jesus lists for His apostles is for them to “be with Him.”  Although masses have been suspended until further notice, may we never neglect that first responsibility of remaining near Him in our hearts, our minds, and our souls.  Additionally, following the recommended directives from the Diocese, the following schedule will be in place until further notice:

  1. All Masses are currently suspended. 
  2. Confessions will be available by appointment only. Please call the office to schedule a time.
  3. Televised masses may be found on EWTN Catholic Television Network.  Sunday masses are aired live at 7 a.m., and rebroadcast at 11 a.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m.  Daily masses are aired live at 7 a.m., and are rebroadcast at 11 a.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m.

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!

Lenten Resources

Lenten Action Cards

How to Use: Print these pages, cut out the cards, fold them in half, and place them in a jar or small box. Place the jar or other container in a central location in the home, perhaps on the dining room table or the counter next to the fridge. Invite each family member to draw out a paper and focus on its Lenten living suggestion that day or week. Make this a regular activity during Lent. Alternately, one person could draw out an activity card that everyone in the family will use to inform their actions that day.


Online Lenten Retreat

This is an adapted version of the Spiritual Exercises. Materials are modified from the longer retreat in The Ignatian Adventure by Kevin O’Brien, SJ.

The eight-week schedule makes it perfectly timed as a Lent and Easter retreat, but the adventure can be started at any time, on your schedule. Join in a flexible experience of daily prayer and reflection. Choose to commit to a regular period of prayer each day, or start with only one day a week. Use as much or as little of the material as helps you in your Ignatian adventure.
