The Lionel Bowen Lecture Series seeks to engage with leading figures in Australian society who have contributed significantly to the common good, and inspire others to emulate their example. The lecture series is a public event open to all in our community.
We warmly invite you to join us for this special event. This year’s lecture will be presented by Jesuit priest Fr Frank Brennan SJ AO. Fr Frank is Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Social Services Australia – the Catholic Church’s peak body for social services in Australia.
Fr Frank Brennan SJ AOF
Fr Frank has been a long-time advocate for human rights and social justice in Australia. His contact and involvement with people who are poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged began early in his priestly ministry when he worked in the inner Sydney parish of Redfern with priest activist Father Ted Kennedy. In every role he has had since, he has been amplifying the voice of conscience, especially the voice of those who are marginalised.
Fr Frank is also an adjunct professor at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture and the Australian National University College of Law and the National Centre for Indigenous Studies. He is also the superior of the Jesuit community at Xavier House in Canberra.
