Fr Joe Maier - An honour beyond belief
Last edited 17th April 2013

Father Joe Maier has been present in the lives of the poor in Thailand and Laos since 1967, presence he describes as an "honour beyond belief". After studying the Thai language in Bangkok, Fr Joe, as he is affectionately known throughout many of the poorest communities in Bangkok, became a Parish priest to a remote Catholic village in the rural North East of Thailand before moving to a Catholic Hill Tribe Village, where he studied the H'mong language in Northern Laos. Fr Joe returned to Bangkok in 1972 to serve a 25 year tenure as the Parish Priest to the Catholic community located in a slaughterhouse neighbourhood. Fr Joe joined with Sister Maria Chantavarodom in 1973 to start the Human Development Foundation for his disadvantaged neighbours of all religions.
