Our Beautiful Gardens

Gardens can have a powerful impact on people passing by the church.  A lush, healthy garden filled with color can invoke hope, joy, and even energy; whereas a dead garden or one filled with weeds can do just the opposite.  Gardens can also be places of healing, meditation, or simply peace during a hectic day. 

St. Monica and St. James is blessed to be surrounded by gardens that stimulate the senses.  Gardens that attract people by their sights and fragrances may encourage people to stop and enjoy, perhaps drawing them in a bit farther each time.

Our trowel commitee maintains our gardens.  We are always looking for volunteers to help keep our gardens beautiful and a place where people feel invited and welcomed.  Please let us know if you would like to be on the trowel commitee!

Our next church-wide gardening opportunity is:
