Congratulations Father John

Fr. John receives special recognition from Fr. Andy Knop, OMI

Fr. John celebrates with Fr. Andy

In July, Fr. John Madigan, O.M.I. celebrated 11 years of service as the Oblate Chaplain Director of the Missionary Association.  Over those years, Fr. John inspired benefactors throughout the United States to become co-missionaries with the Oblates in their global work to serve the poor and needy. Recently, Fr. Andy Knop, O.M.I. was appointed as the new Oblate Chaplain Director at the Missionary Association.  He will continue Fr. John’s legacy of being a bridge between the Oblates and their benefactors.  Father John will continue to work some days at the Missionary Association, helping Fr. Andy fulfill the prayer requests of the benefactors.
