St. Monica's is an English speaking Roman Catholic parish serving the central Notre-Dame-de-Grace (NDG) area of Montreal, Quebec.
Christmas and New Year's Mass Schedule
We at St. Monica's understand that our commitment to the Catholic social mission must be rooted in and strengthened by our spiritual lives. In our relationship with God we experience the conversion of heart that is necessary to truly love one another as God has loved us.
As members of a Christian community, Pastoral Home Care Volunteers strive to become a compassionate presence to the sick and elderly.
The Community Food Pantry is committed to bringing hope, compassion and assistance to those low income individuals and families living within our parish area. We strive to promote the human dignity of all those in need...
On behalf of Fr. Bertoli, our deacons Richard and Dennis, our pastoral associates Anna and Jennie, the parish staff, the wardens and pastoral council, and all of us here at St. Monica’s, we wish to each and every one of you a Blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with peace, joy, and good health. Thank you for the many ways in which you so generously support the mission of our Parish. Following the example of Pope Francis, a true prophet of divine mercy and love, may each of us be filled with the joy of proclaiming Christ: in our hearts, our families, and our society. God bless you all!
Joy of the Gospel
The joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness.
