Paul has also been the Sydney coordinator of the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants for 25+ years.

He has tirelessly taken the message of the dignity of life to the streets of Sydney for over 26 years, especially through his peaceful vigils outside abortion mills with the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, pouring all of his energies into the cause for life, which is becoming more urgent than ever in Australia.
