St. Monica Catholic Community is honored to support the mission of Habitat for Humanity by sponsoring volunteer builds in various locations in Southern California as well as in other states and countries.

 

We sponsor local volunteer builds, typically one Saturday per month between October and May. Everyone is welcome to participate! No experience or special skill is necessary—Habitat will provide the tools, and you will receive any necessary construction guidance on the builds themselves. Over the past few years, our local teams have contributed to home-building projects in the Los Angeles area, the San Fernando Valley, and Ventura County. We even participated in an unforgettable event—a Key Ceremony, which is the chance to welcome a family into their new home for the first time.

 

In addition to our local builds,we have also sponsored volunteer builds in places with great need for affordable housing: New Orleans, Louisiana; Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico; and Belfast, Northern Ireland.

 

To help support all these efforts and those of the St. Monica Catholic Community in general, we host an annual community party and participate in parish events.

Upcoming Events

 

Monday, July 25, 7 p.m. - Meet at the Parish Office

"A Night in Vegas" Planning Meeting

Are you a consummate party planner?  Or have you never planned a big party but have always wanted to do so?  (We’ll teach you what you need to know.)  It’s a great way to make a difference and make new friends at the same time.  Then come help us plan this year’s Habitat Party!  Our goal is to raise funds to help support the efforts of the Catholic Coalition, and the annual Party is our main way to reach that goal. We welcome volunteers who’d like to help with any of the following:

  • Promotion

  • Food

  • Drinks

  • Décor

  • Raffle and Balloon Pop

 

It’s a lot of fun and for a great cause!

Questions?  Contact Christine at or (310) 566-1531.

 

Saturday, July 23, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Habitat build at the Catholic Coalition house 

 

Pick up your hammer and come to our next build at the Catholic Coalition house.  St. Monica is working in conjunction with several parishes in L.A. to help raise funds and build a home for a deserving family.   

Because of your help this past year, St. Monica is sponsoring an official Habitat Build Day on Saturday, July 23.   What is the significance of a sponsored build day?  It means . . . 

  • 15 guaranteed spots at a Los Angeles area build for  St. Monica volunteers,
  • Guaranteed  “build work,” i.e., we’ll be doing real building (hammering, drywalling, etc.) not yard or foundation work,

  •  a delicious lunch,
  • the opportunity to have your picture taken a lot, so get your smiles ready!
  • a chance to get to know other parishioners better, and
  • knowing that you’ve made a difference for a family.

 

If you are interested in joining us, contact Christine at    or (310) 566-1531. (Builders must be 16 years or older.)  Reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll have a waiting list if necessary, so make sure to sign up now!

 

Annual Habitat Party: "A Night in Vegas" on Saturday, August 20

"Where the (Habitat) House Always Wins!"

 

vegas night1Dance and play the night away at our annual Habitat Extravaganza! This year's theme is  "A Night in Vegas!"   Our previous parties have been a blast, and we know this one will be too.  Come play the tables, enjoy delicious food & beverages, dance the evening away, and win fabulous raffle prizes, all for a great cause!  All proceeds will benefit the ongoing efforts of Habitat LA Catholic Coalition, a partnership of over 30 Catholic organizations who raise funds and provide volunteers for Habitat for Humanity in the greater LA area. Help reach our goal of raising $150,000, the amount to cover the cost to build one house for a Habitat family or individual.

 

$25 per person; $40 for two if purchased by August 5.

 

If you have questions or would like to volunteer to help with the party, contact Christine at or (310) 566-1531.
