Outreach and Pastoral Care

Summer in the Outreach and Pastoral Care Department at St. Monica has come to mean a time of renewal, connecting and delving deeper into our faith and social concerns. Watch in the weeks to come as our ministries shed a light on food insecurity and the importance of health, and prepare for our parish return to Kenya. In the last few years it has been our joy as a parish to support the Calvary Warriors, an afterschool sports camp providing students with a safe place to have fun and build relationships at Holy Cross Church, Dandora, Kenya. Approximately 300 children participate in the Warriors activities. Perhaps our travelers from St. Monica might join the students for a game? Summer also spells fun in Outreach and Pastoral Care and we have a lot of that coming in the weeks ahead. All of our fellowship groups have seasonal outings planned and if you cannot join us in person check out our virtual coffee and donuts.
