Father Carboy was born on Nov. 6, 1939, in Brooklyn, N.Y. He attended high school at St. Mary’s College, the Redemptorist Preparatory Seminary, in North East, Pa.

He professed his first vows as a Redemptorist on Aug. 2, 1961. He finished his novitiate year at the religious order’s house of studies in Ilchester, Md., and completed his theological studies at Mount St. Alphonsus Seminary in Esopus, N.Y., where he was ordained on June 19, 1966.

From 1968 to 1972 he served in parochial ministry at Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Baltimore, extraordinary preaching ministry at Notre Dame Retreat House in Canandaigua, N.Y., and then as assistant to the Redemptorist novice master in Ilchester, Md.

He then served as pastor for six years in Concord, N.C., pastor for six years at St. Anne in Sumter, and superior for four years at St. Alphonsus Villa in New Smyrna Beach.

In 2008 he worked for one year in Virginia, but ill health forced his retirement from active ministry.
