Saint Damien Parish of Ocean City, NJ

Catholic Strong Project Status

As you are aware, The Diocese of Camden and our parish conducted a capital campaign, Catholic Strong, last year. At that time, we asked you to assist us in this endeavor, and help us you did! We are grateful for your many generous contributions to the campaign. In total over the next five years, St. Damien Parish expects to have available approximately $700,000 for those improvements, due to the generosity of our parish members and visitors. This is great news! The following is an update on how we are judiciously spending your treasure. Thank you and may God bless you all!
