May Christ’s Peace be with you always!
Here in Germantown we have begun to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal.
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal has given itself faithfully to the promotion of devotion to Mary Immaculate through the Miraculous Medal each year since 1915. Truly the association has been a font of God’s grace to so many over its 100 years.
The CAMM has also been a major apostolate of the Eastern Province and so I thank all of the Vincentians who have worked there over the past 100 years. I thank, as well, the many confreres who preach at the Shrine on Mondays. You offer hope and share faith Monday after Monday to the devotees. The confreres of St. Vincent’s Seminary have served as celebrants and confessors to the Shrine since the beginning of the devotion. Again thank you.
I thank as well the many folks, all dedicated women and men, who work at the Central Association. We can never forget the promoters of the Medal who year after year support the pious causes of the Association.
Today I share with you part one of a history of the CAMM which was written by Anne Pryce.
