Volunteer Central

St. Monica Catholic Parish is a vibrant faith community that proclaims and lives the teachings of Jesus Christ. We do this in countless ways both inside and outside the walls of our church and Serve---Volunteerschool. The Gospel is proclaimed at the altar — and louder still as a parishioner welcomes a stranger, protests an injustice, or feeds a hungry family. There are multiple ways you and your family can share your time and talent with others. Please click on the links at left to learn more about current volunteer opportunities, or click here to take our time and talents survey.
