While praising God for His infinite goodness and love, we regret to inform you that our dear friend and member of our parish team, Deacon Richard Haber died suddenly of a heart attack on February 7 in Mexico. His wife Patty Ann and Father Raymond were at his side. Four of Patty Ann and Richard’s children have arrived in Mexico to provide comfort and support to their mother.
Let us remember dear Richard in our prayers, and let us pray also for his wife and his children Alexandria, Damian, Julian, Christopher, Daniel, and Jennifer and for Father Raymond. Let us also be grateful for Richards’s life and ministry and may God grant him Eternal Rest.

At St. Monica’s, every September marks a new pastoral year that invites us to explore our faith by considering a theme that is relevant to our lives. This year, our theme is Called to be Holy … “Be Holy, for I Am Holy”. (1 Peter 1:16) What a happy coincidence it was that, as we were deciding on this theme, Pope Francis released his latest apostolic exhortation, Rejoice and Be Glad: The call to holiness in the contemporary world! With this resounding confirmation, we wasted no time in putting together a program that we are proud to share with you.
Peace on earth to men and women of goodwill, who work quietly and patiently each day, in their families and in society, to build a more humane and just world, sustained by the conviction that only with peace is there the possibility of a more prosperous future for all.
