Basankusu, DR Congo

Brother Hubert Neumair Retires

His hopes of going straight to “the Missions” were dashed and he was appointed to South Tyrol where he spent the best part of 25 years engaged in promotion of Mission mainly through the magazine. Finally he was appointed to Kenya where he worked a few years in Western Kenya. From there he came to Kagoma in the Diocese of Jinja, Uganda, where he worked alongside the late Fr.Louis Helfer.
