Welcome to St. Monica's Parish!

As we have entered a new millennium in the life of the Church and the world, members of the body of Christ are called upon to share in the role of bringing the "face of Jesus Christ" to the world by their active participation in prayer and good works.

May this website be a viewpoint into the life of St. Monica's Parish so that you may find a way to contribute to the building up of God's kingdom here on earth and help bring others to recognizing their salvation in Jesus Christ.
