Mgr Hall, 54, didn’t commence his priestly ministry thinking he’d be a chaplain to the Australian Defence Force. Born in Clayton where he grew up with his parents, Pat and Don, and five sisters, he attended St Peter’s Primary School for two years. He then attended De La Salle College from Years 4 to 12 in Malvern. He entered the seminary in 1980 and was ordained in 1987.
