St. Monica Gay and Lesbian Outreach Ministry (GLO) is a fellowship where gay and lesbian people of faith are welcomed to explore their spirituality and share their experience, strength, and hope with one another. In 2017, GLO will celebrate their 25-year anniversary since the ministry was first started at St. Monica.
We mostly communicate by email and through Facebook. If you haven't done so already, subscribe to our mailing list and join our group on Facebook!
