Stewards of the Miraculous Medal
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal is dedicated to spreading devotion to Mary Immaculate and her Miraculous Medal, supporting the promotion of this devotion, helping the formation and education of seminaries, providing care to the aged and infirm Priests and Brothers of the Eastern Province, and supporting programs that provide assistance to the poor.
We welcome all visitors to our beautiful Shrine, located in the heart of Philadelphia. The Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal provides a sanctuary for prayer, meditation, and pilgrimage to God and to Our Blessed Virgin Mary. Visitors are also encouraged to enjoy our Museum’s historical collection of Marian and religious artwork.
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal has four central purposes that define our driving mission.

St. Vincent de Paul’s Priests and Brothers (Vincentians)
Saint Vincent de Paul founded the Congregation of the Mission in 1625 to preach the Gospel to the poor and to work for the formation and education of the clergy. Today, the Congregation, popularly known as the Vincentians, is a worldwide Community of Priests and Brothers working in many nations.
In March of 1915, Father Joseph Skelly, CM, established the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal. The original purpose of the Central Association was to spread devotion to Mary Immaculate by encouraging devotion to Mary under her title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
