Fr Kevin Dillon AM PP

“For more than two decades, Father Kevin Dillon has spoken for those who can’t speak out and acted for those who are crippled, particularly those affected by church-related sexual abuse… With strength, courage and perseverance, Father Dillon has publicly advocated for and privately counselled more than one hundred survivors and helped them to rebuild their lives. In 2013, he established Lifeboat Geelong to provide practical and pastoral support for victims of church-related sexual and child abuse. Humble and faithful to his priestly calling, Father Dillon’s work goes above and beyond the call of duty and his advocacy has at times been in conflict with the church hierarchy. A man of integrity, intelligence and fortitude, his actions have served to strengthen the resolve of many and to help pave the way towards healing, hope and justice.” – From 2016 VIC Senior Australian of the Year Nominee blurb.
