Fr. Rob Galea
As a young man struggling under the weight of rebellion, addiction, and depression, Fr. Rob was considering ending his life but he fought his demons to forge a relationship with Jesus Christ and has never looked back.
As well as being an internationally renowned pop sensation and aspiring body-builder, this naturally introverted man with “Forgiven” tattooed on his well-developed bicep is first a Christian and ordained Catholic priest currently serving the Sandhurst Diocese in the state of Victoria, Australia.
Wearing his Roman collar, Fr. Rob exploded onto the world music stage in 2015 as a contestant on Australia’s X-Factor. With World Youth Day appearances in 2008, 2016 and 2019, Fr. Rob is in the company of extraordinary artists who have performed in key Catholic events before a single live audience exceeding 1,000,000 people. Fr. Rob’s book, Breakthrough: A Journey from Desperation to Hope, is being produced as a Hollywood movie.
He’s known to millions through FRG Ministry – A Catholic movement bringing the love of Jesus and His message of hope to people of all ages around the world. Fr. Rob and his team currently minister to over 400,000 annually, carrying Christ’s message of hope and relationship with Jesus to all they encounter.
