Pacific missionary

Tributes pour in for Pacific missionary Bishop Robin Leamy

Emeritus Bishop of Auckland Patrick Dunn says he played a significant role in the growth of the church in Oceania. 

“Bishop Bob, as he was fondly called, spent much of his priestly life in missionary work in the Pacific, in Samoa and in Fiji, and later in the Cooks as Bishop of Rarotonga from 1984 to 1996.

“He was a man of many talents, as an educator, a leader and administrator. I will be forever grateful for his wisdom and friendship and his generous support.”
