A temporary structure was built and two nuns became the first teachers of St. Monica School.
A permanent building was constructed on the current site in 1925, with additions in 1955, 1963, and 1966.
St. Monica's Parish is blessed with a dedicated group of garden volunteers who work tirelessly in the Spring and Fall to maintain the parish gardens.

The symbol above the tabernacle is called the Chi Rho symbol.
It is a Christian symbol for "Christ" written by superimposing the two Greek letters 'Chi (X)' and 'Rho (P)',
which are the first two letters in Greek of the name of "CHRist".
Learn more about the Chi Rho symbol here.
The first baptism recorded in our parish register was held on March 3, 1907.
Baptisms are held every 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 1:30 pm.
