Founded in 1915, the Central Association of the Miraculous Medal (CAMM) is dedicated to spreading devotion to Mary Immaculate and her Miraculous Medal and supporting the Vincentian Priest and Brothers of the Eastern Province programs that provide assistance to the poorest of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal located in the heart of Philadelphia provides visitors a sanctuary for prayer, meditation, and pilgrimage to God and to Our Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as the opportunity to enjoy the Museum’s historical collection of Marian and religious artwork.
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal has four central purposes that define their driving mission:
- To render honor to Mary Immaculate and to encourage the use of her Miraculous Medal with prayers and devotions to her, under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
- To support the education and formation of men for the priesthood and brotherhood in the Congregation of the Mission.
- To support the aged and infirm Brothers and Priests of the Eastern Province of the Congregation, the parent body of The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal.
- To support the apostolic works of the Vincentian Eastern Province on behalf of the charity and service for the poor in our community.
Mary Jo Timlin Hoag was appointed CEO of CAMM in early 2018. Mary Jo came from a successful business career with leadership roles in Aetna, General Motors, GE Healthcare, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Through her experience in operations strategy, program development, employee engagement, change management, and organizational development, she has strategically led CAMM to tremendous growth over the last five years. Under her leadership, the CAMM budget has grown from $3.5 million to $6.7 million with the goal of continued growth. Mary Jo and her team have ushered in a new era for CAMM developing innovative programming, increasing marketing and social media presence, and building a long-term strategy for growth and support through fundraising efforts.
Programming such as the Catholic Business Network, Young Adult Holy and Happy Hours, Prayer Ministries, and Holiday Concerts continue to attract new supporters to the Shrine and the mission of CAMM. Recently the innovative Beyond Sunday initiative has begun to offer educational programs and retreats to schools, parishes, and other faith-focused organizations virtually, onsite, or at the Shrine.
In December of 2022, Pope Francis granted Basilica status to the Shrine. This great honor will require a strategic effort to enhance organizational infrastructure to build capacity and meet the needs of a rapidly growing multi-faceted organization.
