Seventy-year-old Father Michael Bossano’s solemn declaration sounds resolute. His streaks of white hair tell tales of many years spent travelling the world. For now, however, the soft-spoken Catholic priest has found his place in Malakal, a long way from the comforts of the city he used to call home, New York.
“I always felt I wanted to go beyond my own comfort zone. I was a priest in New York, with a nice place, a car, everything. But when I heard of missionaries going overseas and giving their lives serving others, I thought that’s what I wanted to do.”
Fr Michael Bossano
