St. Monica’s has a rich history dating back to 1991 when it was formed as a mission…
St. Monica’s history begins in 1991 when it was formed as a mission of St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Naples Deanery. St. Monica’s first worship services were held in the community room of the North Collier Hospital and then in an office building near Valewood Drive and Immokalee Road.
On October 2, 1994, we held the first service in what is now our Parish Hall.
In 2002, three classrooms were added to our formation wing.
Late in 2005, our Vestry realized that we could not do the ministry to which God has called us without more space. We began planning for the construction of our current worship space.
In 2006, the Chapel of the Holy Family was named and blessed. The icons of the Holy Family of Jesus and the Holy Family of Monica were commissioned and blessed at the same time.
In July 2010, the first worship was held in our new worship space. By then, we’d also added restrooms to two classrooms and enclosed a porch to create a library.
