The Notre Dame community pays tribute to a great statesman today, with deepest sympathies to Mr Fischer’s family at this sad time.
Tim was appointed as Australia’s first Ambassador to the Holy See in 2008. This followed a distinguished, three-decade career in politics, during which he made an outstanding contribution to Australian public life. Tim was a strong supporter of humanitarian causes overseas, a keen advocate for the power of education, and a great friend of Notre Dame.
