Welcome to St. Monica Catholic Church! We are a small but vibrant historical church located near the St John’s River in Palatka, Florida. Our liturgy is meaningful with full participation of the people. Through a wide variety of ministries we offer many different venues to experience God’s presence in our daily lives. Small Christian Communities meet throughout the year with schedules to meet your personal preferences.

We offer support to all especially those in need of food through St. Monica Food Pantry and our ecumenical efforts with other faith based organizations like the monthly Mobile Food Pantry.

We love our seasonal “Snow Birds”. They tell us that we are their Southern family. We encourage you to be a part of our parish family as we receive spiritual nourishment, guidance, inspiration and strength.  We ask you to join us in our spiritual journey where we share each other's joys and sorrows,  and help those who are struggling and hurt.

We invite you to make new friends, to reach out and join our community of believers.

Explore our website and check out our Facebook page and most importantly stop by and visit Jesus in church! You are always welcome!

Women's Weekend Retreat

March 16 & 17

Do you long for a deeper faith in Christ?

Do you ever wish you knew more of your fellow parishioners?

Would you like to help our parish become a vibrant faith community?

You can accomplish all of this in one amazing weekend. We want to extend a personal invitation to you to attend the next Christ Renews His Parish retreat, which will be held right here at St Monica. This retreat is the perfect opportunity to get to know other adult parishioners from our church, while growing spiritually. You will participate in fun activities, fellowship, good food, and prayer. Attending will be the best gift you can give yourself.

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is a program designed to bring members of the Parish together in Christ. The emphasis during the weekend is on small group participation. The process is centered around witnessing by team members – rather than teaching – and discussions, and sharing by all.
