Service (Local Mission)
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Matthew 25:42-43
This organization provides disposable diapers for qualified working families in Collier County. St. Monica’s Baby Basics team distributes a case of diapers to each of 30 babies on the second Wednesday of the month. We also support fundraising efforts by Baby Basics of Collier County.
Guadalupe Soup Kitchen
We help set up and serve a hot lunch to the neediest men, women and children at the Guadalupe Soup Kitchen in Immokalee. We meet at the church to carpool the 2nd Thursday of every month and need at least 8 people to volunteer. We hope you can help us serve.
Each week, St. Monica’s provides meeting space for New Horizons of Southwest Florida, a non-profit organization that assists at-risk kids and teens who are growing up in “an environment of poverty, academic failure and hopelessness.” For more information or to become a volunteer, visit the New Horizons of SWFL website.

St. Matthews Soup Ministry
Their mission is to provide housing for the homeless, food for the needy, and an opportunity to change lives in a spiritual environment that is both compassionate and disciplined. In addition to avid support of the annual Golf-A-Thon, members of St. Monica’s also prepare soup which we deliver each month in our “Soup of the Month” program.
Tumaini USA provides help to thousands of AIDS orphans in Kangara, Tanzania. These funds provide the opportunity for school, job training, healthcare and other needs. St. Monica’s is part of Sewing for Hope, a ministry to assist this agency.
