Couples planning marriage should set a date with a parish priest at least 6 months to one year in advance.

It is requested that either the bride or groom are registered parishioners of St. Thomas Parish.  However, if your family has a summer home in Brigantine, we will gladly officiate your wedding, but permission must be given from your home parish. Please call the Parish Office for more details at 609-266-2123, ext. 3.
