Dear Friend and Pilgrim,
Rev. Michael J. Carroll, CM
Welcome to the Miraculous Medal Shrine, and thank you for visiting our website! We hope to bring you the peace and joy of Mary’s motherly love, and we invite you and your loved ones to visit the Shrine to experience the beauty of this holy place. If you can’t come in person, you can still participate in our prayer family here online!
For over 100 years, The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal (CAMM) has dedicated itself to spreading devotion to Mary Immaculate and her Miraculous Medal.
CAMM also supports the formation and education of seminarians, provides care to the aged and infirm Priests and Brothers of the Vincentians’ Eastern Province, and supports programs that assist the poor.
Did you know that we pray for our members every day? View our Membership page to learn how to join in this great blessing as a member of Mary’s Miraculous Medal Family, the world’s largest association of prayer!
Would you like to plan a pilgrimage to visit the Shrine with your family, church group or school? Discover our Pilgrimage and Education Programs, and don’t miss our world-class Art Museum featuring over 400 pieces of Marian and religious artwork.
Be sure to join us for our regular times of prayer including: our Monday Novenas, monthly Spanish Masses and Novenas, our Summer Novena, and our nine-day Solemn Novena. We live-stream our Monday Masses and Novenas and invite you to sign up for our e-Weekly Marian Reflection newsletter and share your prayer intentions and testimonials with us, too.
Through our website, you can learn more about the Shrine and the Miraculous Medal. Read stories of compassion in our Miraculous Medal Magazine, light a vigil candle for a loved one, or browse our online Gift Shop for devotional items to help you in your journey.
When Mary Immaculate gave the Miraculous Medal to St. Catherine Labouré, she asked her to promote it to everyone. Mary told St. Catherine that those who wear this medal should “Come to the foot of the altar. There, great graces will be shed upon all who ask for them.”
We invite you to come to the foot of the altar! Mary never said “no” to God, and God never says “no” to her! Your devotion to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal at her Shrine will not be forgotten in heaven.
I have been training for this assignment all my life. I have a strong devotion to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. To me, the Miraculous Medal is the Medal of Hope. It is a clear sign of God’s care for each of us. Her message couldn’t be simpler: God loves us and cares for us. I invite you to let God touch your heart.
Thank you again for visiting our website. We warmly welcome you to come here often and hope it is a gift to you and your loved ones!
Be assured of my prayers and all the prayers of all the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers.
Devotedly in Mary Immaculate,
Fr. Michael J. Carroll
Miraculous Medal Shrine Director
