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!
