Parish of Saint Monica

The Parish of Saint Monica serves all of Atlantic City. It is the union of the city's previously four Catholic parishes: Our Lady Star of the Sea, Saint Michael, Saint Monica, and Saint Nicholas of Tolentine. The union preserves the title of the former parish named for the mother of Saint Augustine.

Sunday Masses are currently celebrated at the churches of Star of the Sea, St. Michael, and St. Nicholas according to their usual schedules. Daily Mass is only celebrated at Star of the Sea and St. Nicholas according to a revised schedule.

Wedding of the Sea 2015

The Parish of Saint Monica is pleased to announce the annual Wedding of the Sea on Saturday, August 15, 2015. A brief, all-new program begins at 12 Noon in the Adrian Phillips Ballroom of Historic Boardwalk Hall, featuring Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev and the Honorable Donald A. Guardian, Mayor of Atlantic City. The Mass of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary follows immediately, celebrated by the Most Reverend Dennis J. Sullivan, the Bishop of Camden. Dr. Stephen Ball will provide the musical accompaniment. A procession to the surf will follow the Mass. Mayor Guardian will join Bishop Sullivan for the traditional wreath toss. All are welcome.

Following the ceremonies, attendees are invited to St. Michael's Quaremba Hall for a celebratory luncheon. There is limited parking at the Georgia Avenue lot behind St. Michael Church, but the hall is only one block from Boardwalk Hall.
