We are Lay Catholic Men and Woman who have chosen to follow the charism of our founder

St Dominic De Guzman and the Order of Preachers. To praise, To bless and To preach

How did we come by our name St Monica, she is not a Dominican? It comes from a mother that prayed for the conversion of her son, a constant prayer with tears and holy longing. Her prayers were answered and the Church has benefited from her prayers to this day. Her son is St Augustine who stands by St Thomas Aquinas as two of the greatest teachers of the Church, and from whom we take our Rule. We chose her as we pray for the conversion of our own families. St Monica Pray for us, Amen
