Parish Life

St. Monica’s is an active place where you will find friends, fun, and a way to give back.

Jesus calls us to create healthy communities – to live together as one body, serving the one Lord of all. At St. Monica’s we take that call seriously. We’re excited about the many activities and events that strengthen St. Monica’s as a circle of people who care about each other and about the world around us!

All-Parish Potluck Lunches. These events are held on last Sundays of the month after service and at other times.  It is important to bring members of the parish together for fellowship.

Breakfast.  Every last Saturday of the month members are invited to breakfast and fellowship in the Narthex.  You’ll enjoy such dishes as sausage casseroles, cheese grits and biscuits and gravy, muffins and more. After breakfast some members clean areas of the church and do other projects.

Coffee Hour. After service, coffee, snacks and treats are served in the Narthex. This happens every Sunday but the last when we have potluck.

On these pages you will find many opportunities to be involved in the life of the parish both inside and outside our walls.

Cursillo is a three-day weekend designed to help Christians better understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders. More than 20 of St. Monica’s active members have attended Cursillo weekends in various dioceses and several members have served on staff. The local Curslillo Community is Coastal Pilgrims
The Cursillo experience does not end when the weekend is over. It is a starting point that lasts the rest of your life. and a springboard to a life-long practice of the Baptismal Covenant called The Fourth Day. The Fourth Day encompasses three major elements:

  • The Group Reunion – a small group of Cursillo attendees who meet weekly
  • The Ultreya – A “Reunion of Reunions” of sorts, usually held monthly at various churches in the Diocese. St. Monica’s hosts one Ultreya per year to allow the sharing of communal experiences.
  • Spiritual Direction – An important element in the Cursillo movement committed to help persons deepen their union with Christ.

Saint Monica’s Reunion Group meets every other Thursday at 5:15 pm.
