Our theme this year for Advent is “Hope begins where hope begins.“
For 131 years, St. Monica Catholic Community
has gathered the faithful to celebrate
the birth of our newborn king, Emmanuel—God with us.
Whether this parish is your second home
or you’re visiting for the first time,
we welcome you with open hearts.
Come as you are to St. Monica
to worship, grow, serve, give and connect.
We may be weary because we are human,
but we rejoice in hope because we are Christian.
Prepare Him room and gather around the altar of hope.
In addition to our regular Mass schedule, please mark your calendars for these special celebrations during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
