Rooted in our rich Catholic heritage

Come and join us for Mass this weekend.  Our liturgies are vibrant and always welcoming, as we are called to celebrate the sacred meal of the Eucharist as God's family.  The diversity of our St. Monica parish surrounds us each week as we experience the beauty of the Holy Spirit working in our lives.  Weekend Masses:  Saturday at 4:00 PM and Sunday at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM for Emmanuel Church of the Deaf (Voice Interpreted).  All are welcome!
