Annual Sister Shamus Walk and Dedication


The 9th Annual Sister Shamus Walk and Sister Shamus Way Dedication will be held Saturday, April 28. The Walk is Our Lady Star of the Sea Regional School’s primary annual fundraiser.

All proceeds will benefit Our Lady Star of the Sea Regional School, the island’s only Catholic school.

This year the day will include the dedication of the cross-street of Our Lady Star of the Sea, California Avenue, as Sister Shamus Way. Father Jon Thomas, pastor of the citywide Parish of Saint Monica, will offer a blessing, and there will be remarks from Sixth Ward Councilman Jesse Kurtz.

Registration begins in the school gym at 7:30 a.m. The walk will begin around 9:30 a.m. The students will lead the way, as the Walk proceeds onto the Atlantic City Boardwalk to Albany Avenue and back, a distance of just over two miles.

The cost for pre-registration is $20 if purchased by April 26th, or $25 for on-site registration. Participants can register for the Walk online by visiting OLSSAC.ORG and clicking “9th Annual Sister Shamus Walk.”

Sponsorships are available for local businesses and family legacies. For details, contact: 609-345-1878 ext. 10, or
