St. Monica’s ‘Disco Night’ to aid Habitat for Humanity

The Habitat for Humanity Ministry at St. Monica Church

The Habitat for Humanity Ministry at St. Monica Church, Santa Monica, will host a “Disco Night” on Aug. 16, 7 p.m. in the parish’s Grand Pavilion.

The evening includes food, dancing (including disco lessons), a disco costume contest, a raffle and “a chance to meet a terrific family who will be moving into a Habitat home,” said Dawna Houston, parish communications director.

Tickets are $30, or $35 after Aug. 10 and at the door. Net proceeds will support the Habitat for Humanity GLA Catholic Coalition Build, a collaboration of more than a dozen Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, to help fund and build an entire home for a hard-working, low-income family. Go to http://bit.ly/CatholicBuild14 for more information.

St. Monica is located at 725 California Ave., Santa Monica. For more information and to purchase tickets, call (310) 566-1500 or visit www.stmonica.net/habitat.

‘Digging a well together’

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

Christian de Cherge, the Trappist Abbott who was martyred in Algeria in 1996, was fond of sharing this story: He had a very close Muslim friend, Mohammed, and the two of them used to pray together, even as they remained aware of their differences as Muslim and Christian.  

Aware too that certain schools of thought, both Muslim and Christian, warn against this type of prayer out of a sense that the various faiths are not praying to the same God, the two of them didn’t call their sessions together prayer. Rather they imagined themselves as “digging a well together.”
