Ministers of Hospitality
"Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality" Romans 12:13, RSV-CE St. Monica's Parish strives to be a welcoming community ensuring each person experiences the parish as their home away from home and finds within it a family united as brothers and sisters in common worship. Greeters and Ushers exemplify this mission for the community by helping to establish a climate of welcome, helpfulness and order among those gathered. They assist the assembly with practical details so that the Liturgy and Sacred Rites can be celebrated with ease and grace. Since COVID-19, these Ministers have been essential in helping us worship safely.

Altar Society
"Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men" Colossians 3:23, RSV-CE. The beauty, quality and appropriateness of the space where the Liturgy is celebrated are crucial for full participation by the assembly. At St. Monica's Parish, volunteers in the Altar Society ensure that the general Liturgical environment (arrangement of space, furnishings, lighting, permanent decorations, etc.) corresponds to the aesthetic and ritual vision of the parish. Also, the volunteers are responsible for handling and cleansing the sacred vessels used in the Mass and other sacred rites of the church. It is the Altar Society’s honor to ensure that God's dwelling place is maintained with the greatest dignity, honor, and respect that it can possibly offer.
