Saint Margaret Mary was established on July 4th, 1926 with the boundaries of the water of the
Ocean, Miller Field, Boundary Avenue, then to Jefferson Avenue.

The first Mass celebrated in Midland Beach goes back 12 years to 1914.  It was held in the
Casino Hotel, on the Midland Beach boardwalk.  From 1914 to 1926, the Midland Beach
community was part of Saint Patrick's parish.

The date of the remodeled Church (1936) is on the building's cornerstone. On October 16th, 2011
we celebrated the
75th anniversary of the remodeled Church.  A Mass of Thanksgiving and
International Food Tasting Luncheon was celebrated.
