Thursday night’s pub talk for SCENE 2012 was presented by Robert Falzon on the topic “Fatherless Australia.”
With five generations of fatherlessness in Australia due to causes such as industrialisation, war, high divorce rates and alcoholism, Robert reflects on the vital role of the father in a child’s life. He explores the impacts of the ‘father wound’, how healing can be found through a relationship with God the father and how men can step up to become the fathers they’re called to be.
Robert Falzon is a husband, father, businessman, co-founder of menALIVE and author. menALIVE is a National Catholic Ministry to bring men together, renew their faith in God and to encourage them to become an active force for renewal in the Church.
