Since 2003, St. Monica has been joined with a sister parish, St. James the Apostle (Parroquía Santiago Apostól) in Lepaterique, Honduras. St. James is located in a mountainous area approximately 30 miles outside of the capital city of Honduras, Tegucigalpa. The parish covers an area roughly half the size of Marion County, with a population of over 16,000. St. James is comprised of over 46 small communities, many of which are accessible only by foot or horseback during the dry season. The pastor may only get to some of these communities two or three times a year. St Monica’s relationship with St. James continues to grow and strengthen through prayer, annual visits between both parishes, and by medical and financial aid via a free-will collection on the third Sunday of each month.
