His first personal experience of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal was on Pentecost Sunday in 1972 – at the Renewal’s beginning in India. Since then he has worked extensively in Renewal and World Evangelism ministries.

He studied Philosophy, Theology and Sacred Scripture in Rome, where he was ordained in 1956. He holds a Ph.D. in Biblical Theology.

Father Rufus was also a director of the National Charismatic Bible College. It has recently been integrated into the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services (ICCRS) in Rome, as responsible for the global ministry of healing and deliverance.

Father Rufus came to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia in 2011 to help the local church. During one healing rally, he prayed over all the participants one by one. I still remember his smile when he put his hands over my head and looked at me. His death is a great loss to the Church Militant.

Bless you for this page. I attended a retreat long ago in 83 as a 13 year old and was wondering what had happened to Fr James and Fr Rufus.
