Joe Maier, C.Ss.R. has ministered to the poor in Bangkok’s slums for
over 40 years. As the Parish Priest of the Catholic community, he
has lived alongside the poor residents around the city’s main slaughterhouse
in Klong Toey slums—which is how he became known as “The Slaughterhouse
Priest.” Fr. Joe co-founded the Human Development Foundation - Mercy
Centre, a community-based organization dedicated to strengthening
the poorest slum communities of all religions and protecting and educating
their most vulnerable children.
