St. Monica Catholic Church, one of the largest Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, is in Santa Monica, California. The church, located at 7th and California Streets, was erected in 1925 and served as the inspiration for the 1944 film classic Going My Way with Bing Crosby. It is also the home parish of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
The Duval Center, one of several buildings on the St. Monica campus, was designed by Frank Gehry and built in 1998. There are two schools associated with St. Monica Catholic Church: St. Monica Catholic Elementary School for grades TK-8 and St. Monica Catholic High School for grades 9-12, both of which are located on the same site as the church.
