Our Namesake

Bishop Mark K. Carroll (1896-1985)

Below are excerpts from the article “A Man of Loving Service” by. Rev. Arthur Busch, published in a special edition of The Catholic Advance on June 8, 1972, in recognition of Bishop Mark K. Carroll’s 50 years of service as a priest and 25 years as a bishop.

The following is a sermon given by Bishop Carroll. Unfortunately, it is not known when the speech was written or given, but it shows the tremendous abilities our namesake had as a Catholic teacher and speaker.
