Who is St. Monica?
St. Monica is a saint who had an intelligent but lazy son named Augustine. In spite of his mother’s efforts, he was a wild, pleasure-seeking youth and led a dissolute life. Yet, St. Monica persisted and continued to pray for her son. Finally, at the age of 32, Augustine changed his life, was baptized, and became a great saint and Doctor of the Church.
Like St. Monica, we as parents pray for our children to be guided by Christ, especially during the formative years of high school. As a service organization, our mission is to pray for our sons, families, and the staff and members of the St. Augustine community.
We have a prayer chain over 150 strong. If you would like us to pray for a special intention, send your request in one of two ways:
Place your petition in the prayer request box located in the school’s main office.
Email your petition to the prayer group at SaintMonicaPrayerGroup@gmail.com.
Join us for “Thursdays with St. Monica”
We invite you to join as a regular member or on a drop-in bases. We assemble every Thursday morning for Mass at 7:45 a.m. in the chapel at Vasey Patio. Afterwards, we pray the Rosary. If you do not have time to stay for the entire Rosary, feel free to stay just for a decade or two.
Come as often as you can, stay as long as you can.
