A Brief History : Established 1858

St. Monica Church is the third oldest Catholic church in the St. Augustine Diocese.  Located in Palatka, the church was one of the many mission stations administered by the Georgia "horseback priests" of the 1850's. From its earliest years, the parish has served a lively mix of ethnic diversity. Consisting of Irish, German and Spanish immigrants from St. Augustine, the church was ministered from Jacksonville by the plucky Fr. William Hamilton.
