The St. Monica Sodality is a devotion promoting prayer and self-mortification for the return to the Catholic faith of family members and friends. The core of the Sodality Devotion is weekly recitation of the St. Monica Novena, followed by the Holy Rosary for all of the intentions submitted to the Sodality.
The St. Monica Novena is a weekly devotion to pray for the return to the Church of fallen-away, marginal, and apostate Catholics from among our families, relatives and friends. Every Wednesday evening, the public is invited to a public recitation of the St. Monica Novena and Rosary for this intention. Those who cannot personally attend the Wednesday evening devotions at St. John Cantius can become members of the St. Monica Sodality, as so many around the country have already done. They can join in prayer with their private recitation of the novena and Rosary every Wednesday evening, wherever they may be.
