Rev’d Dr Gregory Morgan was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney on 21 May 2011 at the age of 24.
He was then the youngest priest in Australia.
After his ordination, he was appointed an assistant priest of the parish of All Saints, Liverpool, and was also a part-time hospital chaplain. During this time, he completed a Licentiate/Masters degree (STL) in ethics, specialising in bioethics. He also had a brief but exciting sojourn as the Administrator of Broken Hill Cathedral.
In 2014, he was sent for further studies in the UK. In 2015, he completed a Masters of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, specialising in the philosophy of religion. He then moved to the University of Oxford for a Doctorate in Philosophy specialising in philosophical/theological jurisprudence and theories of natural law. Throughout his further studies, Fr. Greg assisted in a number of different parishes in London, Oxfordshire, and Yorkshire.
Since his return to Sydney in 2019, he has been a part-time Assistant Priest at St. Augustine’s parish in Balmain and has lectured in philosophy and ethics. He is currently an Adjunct Lecturer in Philosophy at UNDA (Univesity of Notre Dame) and a sessional lecturer in philosophy and ethics at the Catholic Institute of Sydney.
Since 2020, he has been the chaplain to the Catholic Women’s League in the Archdiocese of Sydney and since 2021 has also been the chaplain to the Catholic Women’s League for the state of NSW.
Fr Greg was appointed the fifth Parish Priest of St Catherine Labouré Catholic Church, Gymea, on the 13th August 2021. Outside of his pastoral and academic endeavours, Fr. Greg loves spending time with people in relaxed environs. He wants everyone – no matter where they are in their faith life – to feel at home at St. Catherine’s.
