CONTACT: GLO Core Team |
St. Monica Gay and Lesbian Outreach Ministry (GLO) is a fellowship where LGBTQ+ persons of faith are welcomed to explore their spirituality and share their experience, strength, and hope with one another. GLO was established in 1992 to provide a welcoming place for members of the LGBTQ+ Community at St. Monica. For over 25 years, the Ministry has provided outreach, acceptance, encouragement and fellowship to LGBTQ+ Catholics and their families.
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!
In recognition of Pride Month, the YMA Vespers team is incredibly excited to be teaming up with St. Monica's GLO Ministry. For over 30 years, the Ministry has provided outreach, acceptance, encouragement and fellowship to LGBTQ+ Catholics and their families. Join us for an evening of faith sharing as we hear from some of our LGBTQ+ siblings here at St. Monica Catholic Community. It's sure to be an evening of insightful reflection and compassionate, Christ-filled fellowship.
GLO's fun day on the sand! We will be at Will Rogers State Beach, starting at 12:00 p.m. Meet us near Lifeguard Tower #18, and GLO will provide a light lunch, snacks, and beverages for $10.00 cash!
Please bring your own beach chair, towel, and sunscreen. Umbrellas and volleyballs are also a great idea! Lot parking is available directly across from the Chevron station located at 14791 Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Monica 90402 (on the West/Beach side of PCH). Plan to arrive early as the lots fill up quickly! Parking rates, subject to change, range from $6 to $15. Carpooling and Uber/Lyft/Taxi are all encouraged.
We will be meeting at Roy Quinto's house. From the trail, there are spectacular views of downtown Los Angeles, the Hollywood sign, and Griffith Observatory. This will be an approx. 90-min. easy-to-moderate hiking activity to savor the sunset. Please bring water, flashlight, & snacks.
GLO turns 30! Celebrate with us! Details coming soon!
Is one of your New Year's resolutions to be more involved? We are looking for people to join our GLO Core Team. We can have a conversation about where your interest are and discover where you can help not only keep our Ministry alive, but help it thrive! Contact for more information on how to get involved!
When we are together, we are able to hear your feedback first-hand. Even though we are not together physically, we still want to hear from you! Please take a moment to answer a few short questions from GLO. We will use the learnings to help plan future events.
