Msgr. Michael T. Mannion, S.T.L., M.A.
Pastoral Consultant, Priests for Life
MSGR. MICHAEL T. MANNION, S.T.L., M.A. is the Director of Community
Relations for the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey. Ordained to the Priesthood
in 1971, Msgr. Mannion is a pioneer in the field of post-abortion healing,
having authored some of the first and finest books on the topic, including
Abortion and Healing – A Cry to Be Whole (1986). He has conducted
training for clergy and lay professionals throughout the world on this
topic. His work has helped to develop the Church’s understanding of the
wounds abortion brings and of the path to healing. His ministry inspired Dr.
Theresa Burke to focus on the topic of healing after abortion and to develop
the Rachel’s Vineyard retreat program, now the world’s largest
ministry for post-abortion healing. Msgr. Mannion is now developing a new
line of thought linking the path of healing with the traditional schools of
spirituality in the Church.
Msgr. Mannion has served as a Cable News Network commentator for the funeral
of Mother Teresa, with whom he had the privilege of working. His many other
media appearances include Meet the Press, the Charlie Rose Show,
and MSNBC. He holds advanced degrees in theology, Scripture, and
youth ministry. His work also involved ministering to law enforcement
personnel and their families, and in that arena has been able to apply his
insights into healing the wounds of trauma.
Msgr. Mannion was the Rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception
in Camden, NJ from 2001 until 2008 and his work has helped many pro-life
organizations and dioceses to be more effective in advancing the work of
healing and the protection of unborn children.
