      Michael Ryan and his colleague, Eugene Luckie, who were deacons and one year short of ordination, accepted the call and sailed from Liverpool on October 7, 1847 in the St. Vincent. They arrived in Sydney on Sunday, February 6, 1848.

      He was ordained in Sydney on May 7, 1848 and in September was assigned a position which no one else would accept, that of solitary Catholic chaplain on Norfolk Island. In writing to a friend he said, inter alia, "I feel it passing sweet beyond expression to sit with the prisoners in their dark solitary cells, to hear their sad and bitter tales, the circumstances of their youth, the sources of their misfortune, and the terrible heart-rending misery and degradation, both moral and physical, to which they had been made subject, and then in return to offer them whatever consolation I can".
