I am a Priest belonging to the Oblates of Mary Immaculate – an international missionary of order of priests and brothers at the service of the Church.
A native of Glasgow, I joined the Oblate order in 1990, professed final vows in 1996 and was ordained priest in 1999. I studied for a primary degree at Milltown Park Jesuit College Dublin before completing my studies at the Oblate Theological College, Cedara Durban. RSA.
After a short time as an assistant priest in Liverpool, I moved to Edinburgh where I have fulfilled various roles as Parish Priest and school chaplain. My principal ministry during the last 14 years has been as a fulltime prison chaplain serving both male and female establishments.
Following a short sabbatical, I was transferred by my religious order to the Oblate House in Kilburn where I have responsibility for vocations ministry. I now look forward to being part of the community at Kings, as well as working at Newman House.
