Monsignor Michael T Mannion
Monsignor Michael Mannion, lovingly known as Father Mike, leads the Catholic Archdiocese of Camden NJ and is the founder of Discovery House Ministries. In 2013, The Philadelphia Division of the FBI honored Father Mike for his efforts to educate youth about the effects of substance abuse and violence and for his assistance to the local FBI’s community outreach program.Working with the U.S. Marshals Service, Father Mannion assisted with the organization’s Fugitive Safe Surrender Program. The successful program encouraged the city’s most violent predators to surrender to Father Mannion, due to his collaborative efforts with law enforcement. Father Mannion often volunteers as a chaplain not only to the FBI Philadelphia Division but also to many other community and law enforcement organizations. He also supports the division’s youth and employee assistance programs, providing information on substance abuse, suicide prevention, grief, addiction, and strategic urban community leadership.
