A Contemporary Missionary

Many of today’s Catholic parishes around Australia are led by priests from countries once thought of as ‘missionary lands’. Drawing from his African traditional communal heritage, and from Australian secular culture, Father Emmanuel Aguiyi reflects upon his experiences as a Nigerian priest working in modern-day Australian parishes.

In A Contemporary Missionary, Fr. Emmanuel explores the challenges, difficulties, and joys faced by a newly arrived priest in Australia. He tackles thorny issues like racism, feminism, and seminary training among others, and his reflections shine a light on this new ‘cultural norm’ in Catholic parishes, as well as offering an insightful critique of Australian culture today.
