Rev. Paul Nulley was born and grew up in Australia’s National Capital, Canberra. He recalls always wanting to be a priest. He says his grandmother had the biggest impact on his faith; making the invisible realities so tangible as she would talk about the angels and saints. Rev. Paul says the thought of priesthood was never far from his mind as he made the most of opportunities presented to him during school.
While in secondary school, he would go to the cathedral before work and make a holy hour, attend Mass during lunch break and finish the day off with prayers and study.
He entered seminary in 2007 at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd in Sydney, completing his studies at Corpus Christi College. Rev. Paul was ordained by his first seminary rector Archbishop Julian Porteous in September 2013 at Saint Christopher’s Cathedral in Canberra. He is currently the assistant priest for the Young Mission in rural New South Wales. He serves six parishes, twelves churches and four schools.
