preached missions in Australia and overseas for many decades. Fr. Hugh as a missionary spent
over 22 years in the Philippines. During that time he had a roving mission going from village to village
preaching, administering the sacraments and training lay leaders. He spent 12 years in
Western Australia, where he conducted many retreats and parish missions.
He has visited Indonesia and Singapore many times giving retreats to priests and promoting adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
With Fr.Doug Harris, a diocesan priest of Perth, he has helped

Fr. Hugh is currently based in Sydney. He has the wisdom and maturity of a
seasoned missioner who has heard it all and has helped many who have come to him as a representative
of Jesus Christ. We are fortunate to have him in Brisbane for a week to help us grow closer to Jesus truly
present in the most Holy Eucharist.
