Jesus reminds us that He is the vine and we are the branches, and it is through the branches that the vine is nourished.  It is through our parish service organizations, that are dedicated to charitable service to our community, that we strengthen our Church and build long lasting relationships with one another.  If you are simply attending Sunday Mass, you are missing the tremendous opportunity that comes from becoming involved with one of our wonderful parish ministries or our great organizations!  Your participation will not only enrich your life, but it will also envigorate the communion of faith that we enjoy at St. Monica Catholic Church.
