Fr Gary Walker was elected Regional Director of St Columbans Mission Society for Australia and New Zealand in 2011. He commenced his initial three year appointment on the 23 November, 2011, the Feast Day of St Columban, and was re-elected for another three year term in 2014. Upon accepting his appointment, Fr Gary said one of the biggest challenges ahead will be "to engage young people in the missionary arm of the Church". Fr Gary also looks forward to working in collaboration with Lay People and other Congregations.
