Fr Paul


Fr Paul was the second director of Maryvale Institute, a post he held from 2000 to 2012, during which time he oversaw the expansion of Maryvale's international outreach, and the establishment by the Holy See of the Higher Institute of Religious Sciences, though which it is able to offer ecclesiastical degrees. Many past students of Maryvale will primarily remember Fr Paul though as an inspired and inspiring teacher of the faith, with a great fervour for evangelisation rooted in proclamation of Christ as our saviour. May he rest in peace.
