Gabriel was born in Nigeria and ordained a priest in June 2009. The then Bishop of Lismore, Bishop Geoffrey Jarrett invited Gabriel to serve in the Diocese of Lismore soon after and Gabriel served in several parishes, namely the Cathedral Parish Lismore, Ballina, Wauchope and Tweed Heads.
In 2018, Gabriel made contact with the Military Diocese expressing interest in serving as a Chaplain with the Air Force. His Interest in Military Chaplaincy was spurred by several ADF Veteran members of the above parishes. Gabriel joined the Diocese and Air Force Chaplaincy in mid 2019. He successfully passed Air Force Officer Training School and has taken up an appointment at RAAF Base Williamtown, NSW
We welcome Fr Gabriel into the Diocese with joy.
