Bid Farewell to Fr. William J. O’Brien, CM
Effective July 1, Fr. Michael J. Carroll, CM, (left) accepted the role of Director of the Miraculous Medal Shrine and Spiritual Director of the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal. The role was previously held by Fr. William J. O’Brien, CM, (right) who retired on July 1st.
The Miraculous Medal Shrine is pleased to welcome Fr. Michael J. Carroll, CM, as the new Director of the Miraculous Medal Shrine and Spiritual Director of the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal (CAMM). Fr. Carroll formerly held the position of Provincial of the Eastern Province for eight years and is excited to serve in this new capacity.
He succeeds Fr. William O’Brien, CM, who retired after serving for two years as Director of the Miraculous Medal Shrine and CAMM’s Spiritual Director. Fr. O’Brien also previously served as CAMM’s Executive Director from 1996 to 2002, and he currently serves as Director of the Our Lady of Angels Association at Niagara University. We are extremely grateful for Fr. O’Brien’s dedicated service to CAMM. We wish him all the best and ask Our Lady to watch over him in his future endeavors.
