Saint Monica's Catholic Church. Established back in 1886, the St. Monica parish predates the city of Santa Monica (which is, of course, Spanish for "Saint Monica"). A that time, the nearest Catholic church was at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. The current church building dates to 1926. It was damaged during the recent big earthquake, but the damage has been fixed, and the church looks better than ever.
