It was great to see Father Dave on Compass this week. I've known of Father Dave on and off for many years - but the Compass program presented a lot of stuff I didn't know. It helped me to have a more rounded picture of him.
And I like his honesty. Father Dave has been working in Dulwich Hill for a long time and seen it change from a poor and troubled working class inner Sydney suburb to inner city trendiness. He has worked to bring about change with families and young people - but he says the real change is due to rising real estate prices!
