On Friday August 8, 2014 larrikin Priest Father Bob Maguire joined the Year 12 students at Marymede Catholic College.

Father Bob addressed our students on the subject of encountering conflict, which is their English context study for 2014. This address was followed by Mass to celebrate the Feast of St. Mary Mackillop.

The following introduction was delivered by Emily Necovski, Year 12 student, provided by Father Bob’s Foundation.

"Fr. Bob has a long history in the Melbourne community and as a pioneer in the social sector.

Bob's early life instilled in him a sense of care and concern for the forgotten members of community, the 'unlovely and the unloved'. Bob led the Character Training Unit for young officers in the Australian Army before beginning his well known 39 year stint as parish priest of Ss Peter and Paul Church in South Melbourne. Bob's Melbourne outreach work got started and he threw himself into the service of the homeless and down on their luck. He worked with anyone - criminal, addicted, young and old could rely on Bob. From the pulpit of South Melbourne, he launched Open Family in 1978, Emerald Hill Mission in 1989 and his latest venture, The Fr Bob Maguire Foundation in 2003. The Fr Bob Maguire Foundation continues Bob's mission of ensuring that there is a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for the forgotten and downtrodden. In his late 70's, Bob is preparing to launch a new OutreachHQ, his online Parish Without Borders and building up the Foundation for the next generation."

Fr. Bob was wide-ranging in the areas of that he addressed. Some references were made to the impact of World War One and its legacy, the current Gaza Strip conflict, asylum seekers, and reflections on his own life experiences. He inspired the students with a film clip from Channel Ten’s ‘The Project’ and a short advertisement made by his Foundation challenging the students about the issue of homelessness in our community.

Our students were both inspired and entertained by Fr. Bob’s refreshing and unique perspective, which made student see issues in a new way. He charmed the student with his easy manner and ability to bridge the generational divide. While he was generous with his time, the morning sped by very quickly. Instantly recognisable, students and staff were delighted to call out ‘Hello, Father Bob’; it isn’t often we have a celebrity in our midst. His Foundation has already written suggesting an ongoing relationship with Marymede Catholic College and we are thrilled at this prospect.
