Rev. Father Michael Alipia Endemann was born and raised by his parents and grandparents from the villages of Leulumoega and Fagamalo in Samoa. He attened Apia Primary, Leififi and Chanel College, Moamoa. He continued on with his education at the University of the South Pacific, Alafua.
In 1984, he was invited by Cardinal Pio Taofinu’u to attend the seminary in Rome in the hope to take up a Religious life. He was ordained as a Priest in 1991.
He was appointed to lead a team of Missionaries to Jamaica in the Caribbean in 1995-2004. This mission Fr Michael holds dearly as it was born out of a prophesy that the deceased Holy Pope Paul VI had had prophesied to the wold that “One day, Samoa will be a country of Mission.”
He returned from Jamaica in 2005 and shifted to Auckland where he worked at Christ the King, Owairaka for five years. He was then shifted to Beachaven, North Shore, to work at the Parish of the Assumption for three years. In 2013 to date, he was appointed as Parish Priest for St Patrick’s, Panmure as well as the Chaplain for the Auckland Diocese Catholic Samoan Chaplaincy at Malaeola Centre.
