St. Monica's Roman Catholic Church is a parish of the Archdiocese of Boston, located in Methuen, MA.  Our parish life is centered on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the Sacraments of the Church instituted by Jesus Christ.  We are faithful to the Gospel and to the Magisterium, and loyal to the Church and to Her Pastors - Pope Francis, our Holy Father, and Sean Cardinal O'Malley, our Archbishop.

St. Monica, our patron, spent her life in prayer for her family. We seek to follow her example offering our lives in prayer, sacrifice and good works for the salvation of the Family of Man.

We invite you to look around our website and see what we can offer you and your family.  We hope that you will want to join us --- for worship, for sacramental life, for education, and for fellowship and community in Christ. Please know that you are most welcome!  Respectfully and in Christ, Msgr. William Fay, Pastor.
