Stanislaus William McGuire, Christian Brother and Hermit

Stanislaus William McGuire (1926-2011) was an Australian Christian Brother who became a hermit at Mulgoa in July 2005. He spent much time in contemplation and his list of those he prayed for continued to grow. He still worked hard in his garden and orchard and was ever grateful to the Brothers of the community at Mulgoa who helped and cared for him. Hermit he truly was, but not in isolation. He welcomed visitors and gave generously of his time – but his focus was on God, on beauty, on love. Only when his health was failing did he accept a transfer to Edmund House Charingfield. He died in 2011.
