Hugh O’Sullivan’s Notes for Leaders
Pentecost Sunday is also the anniversary of the death in 1997 of former Australian and International YCW chaplain, Hugh O’Sullivan, a priest from the Archdiocese of Adelaide.
Many of us of that generation had the privilege of learning personally from him.
To me, he was and remains the priest who best understood Cardijn and his conception of the specifically lay apostolate of lay people.
So many memories to recall but today let’s just look at his classic Notes for Leaders first published in 1977 as he worked with Michael Campbell, John Bonnice and others to rebuild the Australian YCW as a national movement.
