HUGHES

(REV FR DONALD) OMI

23.8.1932 - 20.7.2020 It is with great sadness that the Australian Province announces the death of Fr Donald Hughes OMI on 20.7.2020.

Fr Donald Hughes was born on 23.8.1932 in East Fremantle and was educated at CBC Fremantle. He joined the Oblates in 1954 in Sorrento, Vic, and studied at Piltown, Ireland where he was ordained on 15.9.1957.

Fr Donald served in all the Oblate ministries - he has been a valued missioner, parish priest, teacher, college and seminary rector and formator. He lived a full and active life as a faithful Oblate and even at the age of 87 had been present in the Mazenod College WA Community supporting students and staff.

The Australian Province thanks God for the life of Fr Donald Hughes OMI.

May he rest in peace.
