Mass of Solidarity with Working Families

Mass of Solidarity with Working Families
Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Atlantic City played host to a special Mass of Solidarity with Working Families on Feb. 3. The Mass, which welcomed members of Unite Here Local 54, was followed by a march through Atlantic City. Father Jon Thomas, right, pastor of Saint Monica Parish, distributes the Eucharist during the Mass. Though unable to attend due to illness, Bishop Dennis Sullivan’s homily was read in his absence. Through Father Robert Hughes, Vicar General, he preached to those in attendance that “the social teaching of the Catholic Church is clear on the dignity of labor and its importance to the human person.” He also noted that since 1891 popes have regularly commented on the necessity of “workplace associations and organizations” created to improve the lives of all workers.
