senioradultsThe"Always Beginning" Senior Adult Ministry provides an opportunity for older adults (both men and women) to meet their spiritual and social needs in a friendly environment with their peers from October through June of each year through the following activities:


Friday Luncheons
Our luncheons include a nourishing meal  and follow 12:10 Mass. The meal is served by St. Monica Elementary School sixth grade students. Education programs for senior adults on a variety of topics follow each luncheon. Registration for attendance at these meals is due on the Wednesday prior to the luncheon date.

We sponsor half-day retreats throughout the year that conclude with the 12:10 p.m. Mass and a luncheon. Reservations are required.

Sponsored Matinee of High School Play
Twice a year (November and April), members of the ministry are invited to attend a Saturday Matinée performance presented by the Performing Arts Department at St. Monica Catholic High School. Tickets are free for senior adults, but reservations are required.

Coffee Talks with Fr. Mark
Meets on Mondays four times a year. You’ll enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or tea, the company of your friends, and the chance to talk with Fr. Mark, our associate pastor, about faith issues that are important and of interest to you.
