The St. Monica’s Society was formed as a support group for mothers just like you. The purpose of this society is to welcome families with school-age children (elementary through college) into the parish, to provide an opportunity for families to gather for social, educational and spiritual growth while supporting the community around us.
“We know in all things God works for the good of those who love Him
who have been called according to his purpose” ~ Romans 8:28
We understand the busy life of a mom with school-age children and we know your time is precious. Come as you can and join in and let us nourish your mind, body and soul.
You are invited to join St. Monica’s Society in 2020-2021!

Below are short descriptions of some of our activities and programs:
St. Monica’s Society meets monthly at the St Jude Hall on the fourth Wednesday of the month from 11:30-1pm. Each of our meetings provides free lunch and an opportunity to socialize with friends and learn from a speaker about a topic that is relevant to our group. We hope to see you soon!
Girl’s Night Out:
During the year we have a Girls’ Night Out. It’s a great way to socialize as well as meet other members of St. Monica’s while having an evening out of the house.
St. Monica’s members participate in bible studies directly through the Parish.
Meals for Moms:
St. Monica’s members are eligible to receive meals for their family in times of need and support.
During the year, we gather for social activities with the husbands and wives and also, with the families of our group. It’s always a great night out and a fun opportunity to socialize with the members and their spouses.
One day a month we get together for lunch at a local restaurant. It’s nice while the kids are in school to have a good lunch that you don’t have to cook or clean. Younger kids are welcome if they are not in school yet.
Church Bazaar and Auction:
Members of St. Monica’s assist the parish with activities at the Church Bazaar and Auction.
Throughout the year, the parish calls on St. Monica’s members for assistance with various activities. These activities include bringing desserts for various Parish dinners and other Parish activities as needed.
