St. Monica Mom’s group
It has been written that St. Monica, mother of St. Augustine, spoke these parting words to her son:
One thing only there was for which I desired to linger in this life: to see you a Catholic Christian before I died. And my God has granted this to me more lavishly than I could have hoped, letting me see even you spurning earthly happiness to be his servant.
Like St. Monica, all mothers are the heart of the home loving and suffering for the sake of her children, husband, and others who enter the home where she labors in love to serve their needs. Because motherhood is a sacred vocation that blossoms when it is fostered, St. Monica Moms group strives to encourage all mothers, experienced and new, by offering monthly gatherings giving mothers time for prayer, rest, formation (intellectual and spiritual), and fellowship so as to best fulfill her mission as a mother, grandmother, sister, wife, friend, or co-worker. Monthly topics seek to be life-giving and affirming for each mother.
Each month, St. Monica Moms offers a morning or evening get together, Tuesdays 6:30pm – 8:00pm or Wednesdays 9:30am - 11:00am. Women are welcome to choose monthly which time best accommodates their schedule. Refreshments and small plates are provided generously by the parish. For mothers with small children, childcare is available for all activities held at the parish, and requests can be made each month when responding to the Evite invitation sent to your email account.
For a schedule of the events and to receive Evite invitations to monthly gatherings, please email email@example.com or call Katie Zimdars at 918-406-7879.
