Fr Greg was born in Cambodia in 1952. Like a modern-day Jonah, Fr Greg was an aspiring young man with many dreams of his own before he finally decided to give his life to God by joining the priesthood. Like the apostles, Fr Greg went through a number of adversities. In Vietnam, he was once thrown into prison for 3 years for obeying the Bishop in printing religious books for the Diocese and was later a refugee in Hong Kong in 1990.

On 19 June 1993, Fr Greg was ordained a priest in Paris, France and was sent by the French Mission (MEP) to Singapore a year later. He served at the Church of St Francis of Assisi in Jurong for 3 years from 1994 to 1997. In 2002, he was assigned as parish priest to Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. This remains his only archdiocesan appointment, although he was formerly the MEP regional superior, an appointment currently held by Father Michael Arro.
