Father Joe, popular homeless advocate, to retire in April

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Father Joe Carroll, who has spent decades caring for San Diego's homeless and disadvantaged, will retire effective April 12.

The announcement was made by Father Joe's Villages spokesman Oscar Labiano.

Carroll was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1974, and eight years later was tapped by Bishop Leo T. Maher to lead St. Vincent de Paul.

Carroll became a television fixture over the years as he asked for donations to the center, which spun off into seven villages caring for the homeless throughout the Southwest.
