Once a month the Jr. High students participate in a service morning after Mass. Some students go to the Gathering to serve food to the homeless, others help with babysitting for parish members taking part in Compass.
Pet Blessing Integrated into Disciple Development Plan
On Saturday, 8 October, St. Monica belatedly celebrated the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with the traditional pet blessing. All school Mass has been celebrated on the actual Feast, 4 October, with a recitation of the Prayer of St. Francis after communion.
As is an SMS tradition, all of our students lined our property line on Lake View Avenue to cheer on our friends at Dominican High School as they started their fund raising walk through the area.
At our School Mass on Tuesday, 20 September, St. Monica School had the opportunity to welcome and pray with Father John Bosco and parishioner Margaret from Our Lady, Queen of Apostles parish in Uganda.
