Parish of Saint Monica


Used with permission of Bro. Mickey McGrath OSFS

The Parish of Saint Monica serves all of Atlantic City. It is the union of the city's previously four Catholic parishes: Our Lady Star of the Sea, Saint Michael, Saint Monica, and Saint Nicholas of Tolentine.

The Parish of Saint Monica is seeking a part-time Coordinator of Religious Education. Read the position description.

Masses are celebrated at the churches of Star of the Sea and St. Nicholas. However, the churches of Saint Michael (10 North Mississippi Avenue) and Saint Monica (108 North Pennsylvania Avenue) are still available for weddings and funerals and special events may be celebrated there from time to time. There is a special schedule for St. Michael's.

During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, enter through the Holy Door of St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church, one of five designated in South Jersey by the Bishop of Camden. Large groups (15+) may contact the parish office to arrange a tour of St. Nicholas with one of the parish priests. Tours are offered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
