With the German Pallottines now fully settled in running Beagle Bay and Broome, Fr D’Emo is free to follow his dream of exploring the greater northern areas. He finds a travelling partner in fellow spaniard, Fulgentius Torres O.S.B, the Abbot of New Norcia. With the New Norcia Mission, run by the Spanish Benedictines, doing so well for the aborigines they look to create an expansion mission in the northern Kimberley region. Fr D’Emo and Abbot Torres sail up the coast all the way to Wyndham in the ‘San Salvador’ searching of a suitable expansion site for the new Benedictine Mission.
