Groups that meet in our parish hall or meeting rooms enjoy a coffee cart and snacks, light meals, breakfasts, and multi-course dinners. Our newly updated kitchen has commercial appliances and is fully equipped. The team also cleans and maintains the equipment, keeps linens fresh, and stocks the kitchen with essentials.
The Order of the Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King is an International Order of laywomen and girls who are communicants of the Episcopal, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, and Anglican Churches. Our mission is to be the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. The St. Monica’s Chapter of the Order was started in February 2020. We meet twice a month in person or via Zoom to pray together and discern ways to serve in our church and the community. We invite all women and girls to join us, to share in our fellowship, and see if this is something you may be called to do. Please contact Sandy Kilmon, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org phone 239-514-2866, or Mary Gentzle, our President, e-mail email@example.com.
Special Events Team
This team of ministers plans and coordinates events for the parish—special dinners, recreational activities on and off-campus, and holiday events that occur throughout the year. St. Monica’s folks enjoy fellowship, have fun, and connect as sisters and brothers in Christ through others through these events.
Women of St. Monica’s
Our focus is philanthropy and we frequently have interesting speakers from local charitable organizations. We welcome all women, so if you have visited St. Monica’s please join us! This ministry is currently on hold due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
