Joe Carroll, head of the St. Vincent De Paul Society in San Diego, sometimes tells about how he got chosen to build the homeless shelter for the diocese. Then-Bishop Leo Maher called him into his office and assigned him the job. Fr. Carroll was not thrilled and said, “But why me?” The bishop smiled and said, “Because you, Joe, are the best hustler in the diocese.” Fr. Carroll proved Bp. Maher right because the homeless shelter he built is now the largest in the county, a veritable city-within-a-city that offers a wide range of services for the city’s homeless.
