The Vision for the Parish Expansions & Renovation

To the Community of St. Monica,

The plans to expand and renovate the church are under development, and there has been significant progress over the past several months. Father Alejandro and members of the Building Committee have been actively working with the architect to refine the concepts that were presented at the end of last year and we have made great strides towards enhancing these designs.  The following improvements are included in the design to address specific needs of our parish:

  • Relocate the Sacristy, installing a personal washroom and additional cabinets to better accommodate the storage of Liturgy items.

  • Enlarge the Adoration chapel and provide access from outside the church for parishioners to be able to experience Adoration more frequently.

  • Relocate the rest rooms to the lobby area, and expand the handicap-accessible facilities for both Men and Women with 4 stalls in each.

  • Enlarge the lobby to invite the Community to gather and install a Baptismal Font at the entrance to the church to provide a designated place to perform Baptisms.

  • Add seating in the church by enlarging the cry room, relocating the present chapel, and making use of the sacristy area.

  • Address several structural and aesthetic repairs that are needed throughout the existing building.
