outreach pastoral care banner easter 22

Winter, Lent and yes, COVID, have kept many of us patiently waiting and preparing to get back to activities we have missed and fulfill our Lenten promises to transform the world around us. Outreach and Pastoral Care at St. Monica has a host of programs and events to help you spring back into action from retreats to picnics, and films to hikes. We also have ways to serve those in need and people to listen if you are facing a challenging time. And…if you are still not ready to come back in person many of our ministries have online/Zoom options.  Make a new friend, take up a new ministry, reach out to those in need…save the world! Make a point to join us this spring.

Thank you to those who contributed to last month's Loaves & Fishes Food Drive! Due to the abundant food donations from St. Monica Catholic High School, and the parish, plus generous cash contributions, our community will help provide over 1500 meals in our local area through our partnership with the Westside Food Bank. We'll be back with our next Food Drive on Sunday, June 12.
