Who We Are
The Parish of Saint Monica serves all of Atlantic City. It is the union of the city's previously independent five Catholic churches: Saint Nicholas of Tolentine, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Saint Michael, Holy Spirit, and (Old) Saint Monica. Sunday and daily Mass are celebrated in the churches of Our Lady Star of the Sea and St. Nicholas of Tolentine. Mass is celebrated occasionally in St. Michael's Church. All three churches are available for weddings and funerals. The parish has special ministries to Hispanic, Vietnamese, and black Catholics.
The parish supports Our Lady Star of the Sea School, the only Catholic school on Absecon Island. It is staffed by the Sisters of Mercy and lay faculty. A Catholic Charities office is located at St. Michael's.
Year of Prayer
In 2018, the parish is learning more about prayer through a Bible study and a lecture series. We are also having two traditional vesper services. For the calendar and other information, take a look at the flyer. Check often and read the weekly bulletin for schedule changes.
Every Wednesday evening, Fr. Jon alternates between a Bible study and a Catechism class. Both courses are designed for adult Catholics to learn more about the faith, so they can love Jesus all the more. For details, take look at the flyer.
