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!
GLO Charity Event for Covenant House - Sunday, September 10
Each Christmas, GLO hosts a party for the runaway teen residents of Covenant House in Hollywood. This party brings much needed joy and hope to these young people, as well as gifts of toiletries, flip-flops, and other basic necessities.
We have been blessed with an opportunity to raise the much-needed funds for this party by the generosity of Parishioner, and all-around Great Guy, Christopher Meehan! Chris has written, and will be starring in his own play, Swiping Mr. Right, which he will be performing at the Santa Monica Playhouse, an intimate 64-seat theatre on 4th Street, just blocks from St. Monica.
A SPECIAL BENEFIT PERFORMANCE, hosted by the GLO Ministry with all proceeds benefitting Covenant House, will be held on Sunday, September 10th at 7:30 pm! ALL ARE WELCOME from the Parish for this special event!
Tickets are $20, and are available online at swipingmrright.com. Purchase your tickets early, as this 65 minute show will definitely sell-out! Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be available for purchase in the theatre patio beginning at 6:45 pm. For more information, or to volunteer to assist, please contact Bill at 626-354-1455, or
