Sorry for the delayed reply, and thank you for the responses. 

In my case, I had been running monit as a non-root user for testing.  I'll try it out again as root when we come back around to it.

Thanks, and best regards

To add to @Lutz' response to make it somewhat more clear:
What user is the process running with? "monit reload" must be executed with the same user, usually root. So, it is necessary to do "sudo monit reload" if you are not already root.
Kind regards,

Hello Eric,
are you using the command to reload in the same user context you used to
start monit.

All the time I try to reload the configuration from a different user, I
get an error message (I use MacOS).

Reinitializing monit daemon
Cannot signal the monit daemon process -- Operation not permitted
