Ministries at St. Monica
Being in front of the Holy Sacred Eucharist and sitting with Jesus brings graces to your life. It enriches your prayer life and strengthens your spiritual life. God is so pleased with adoration that every hour spent there releases more souls to heaven.

If you are a Catholic layperson who is drawn to a religious vocation while still remaining as a layperson, you may have a vocation to a “Third Order.” Should this interest you, please attend one or both of the upcoming First Sunday Third Order Dominican meetings -- May 5 and June 2. Meetings are held in the St. Ambrose Center, Room #105, from 3-5 p.m. The next inquiry training will begin in July. For more information contact John or Mary McClernon at 313-6611.
The St. Monica Mom's Group allows mothers to come together to grow spiritually, form lasting friendships, and gain new tools and skills in our efforts to build the domestic church. Join the Moms' Group to be fed on your mission as a Catholic mother.
To accommodate moms' busy schedules, there is a daytime meeting option and an evening meeting option. Both options meet once a month and may include guest speakers, crafting, social time, and more. All activities are FREE, and the church nursery is available with a reservation.
For information or to join the email list, contact the coordinators at MOM's Group. RSVPs for all meetings occur through e-vites that are sent to the email list, so please sign up today.
Have you suffered a divorce or separation and fear condemnation, isolation, or disenfranchisement? The Catholic Church is not here to condemn, but to facilitate healing that only God can offer. Join others in a small group setting during which time participants will explore surviving divorce or separation in the Catholic Church. Learn about Church teachings on divorce, the annulment process, and tools that can help you manage difficult feelings and situations related to divorce or separation.
The Catholic Church inspires movement toward God even when things in your life seem difficult. Divorce does not have to define you. Instead, you can use your experience as an opportunity to move forward living in submission to God's will through fellowship with Him.
Surviving Divorce is for the newly separated and divorced and those still struggling with issues many years later. It will help them answer their questions, restore hope, and begin authentic healing. The next class begins Saturday, March 30 and meets on Saturdays through June 30, from 9-11 a.m. in the St. Ambrose Center. Learn more.

Homebound ministers serve those unable to come to Mass by bringing the "Body of Christ" to them. This sharing of our greatest gift brings joy and peace both to those who give as well as to those who receive. Often this personal visit is at a time of great need and so it is a very rewarding ministry.
If you or someone you know is ill, in the hospital, homebound or not able to get to Mass because of circumstances beyond their control, call the church office at 359-2700 so a Homebound Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion may bring them Communion.
Contact: Deacon Jerry Rakosky, Chairperson of the Homebound Ministry
