Welcome to St. Monica Parish

St. Vincent DePaul

Our children are out of school for the summer! It is a time of fun, but also stress for hundreds of families in Methuen. Parents that depend on reduced breakfast and lunch for their children's nutrition are at a loss to supply them with the meals they need to have a happy, healthy summer. Will you please consider participating in our " One can" project. One can or box of food from each family adds up to many.. The baskets are at the back of the Church. For those who generously give week after week we thank you for your kindness to those we serve.

St. Monica's Roman Catholic Church is a parish of the Archdiocese of Boston, located in Methuen, MA.  Our parish life is centered on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the Sacraments of the Church instituted by Jesus Christ.  We are faithful to the Gospel and to the Magisterium, and loyal to the Church and to Her Pastors - Pope Francis, our Holy Father, and Sean Cardinal O'Malley, our Archbishop.

St. Monica, our patron, spent her life in prayer for her family. We seek to follow her example offering our lives in prayer, sacrifice and good works for the salvation of the Family of Man.

We invite you to look around our website and see what we can offer you and your family.  We hope that you will want to join us --- for worship, for sacramental life, for education, and for fellowship and community in Christ. Please know that you are most welcome!  Respectfully and in Christ, Msgr. William Fay, Pastor.
