Glow with Father Bob

06 Aug 2017

Glow with Father Bob Image

The first of the Docklands Winter Glow talk series saw Father Bob Maguire talk about his life journey and current missions at Library at The Dock on July 4.

Father Bob, a community worker and media personality, was formerly the parish priest at Sts Peter and Paul’s Church in South Melbourne and continues to be a strong advocate for disadvantaged people.

The one-hour talk, anchored by a radio presenter from Triple R, touched on Father Bob’s upbringing, his spiritual education and his contributions to the Melbourne community through the Father Bob Maguire Foundation.

Father Bob said he thought community centres like Library at The Dock were much needed in the modern urban environment and also mentioned he wanted to help build a community hub in Fishermans Bend.

The upcoming two Winter Glow talks are:

  • Tuesday, August 8, The Future of Food with Ravi Presser (Feast of Merit), Nicholas George (Monash University) and Karen Inge (Dineamic);
  • Tuesday, August 22, Melbourne’s Role in Social Enterprise with Kylie Wallace (YGAP), Nick Pearce (HoMie) and Jarrod Briffa (Kinfolk).
