PARISH MAINTENANCE & DEVELOPMENT
St Monica's Catholic Church is a Heritage Listed Building with a Foundation Stone blessed by Archbishop Carr on December 2, 1900. Preserving its beauty and heritage is a cost of great expense to the Parish despite the misconception that it is maintained by the Melbourne Archdiocese. The upkeep and maintenance of the historical main Church building , the original Presbytery House , Parish Hall , Symons Centre , Mercy Place and extensive gardens and grounds is only maintained by Parishioner Giving and Donations - at present this covers existing recurring maintenance items but is not addressing the costs that would be associated with some major restoration or refurbishment costs. The plan is to formulate a restoration program. To initially gain an understanding of what the congregation see as a priority we invite you to provide feedback to us. Bellow are some of the larger issues we are currently focusing on.
