The Screen Guide

On February 21 2009, Father Peter Kennedy of St Mary’s Church in Brisbane, became the first Catholic priest ever to be sacked in Australia. His transgressions included questioning the Virgin Birth, blessing same sex unions and allowing women to recite the Eucharist. In the eyes of Rome, Peter Kennedy is a heretic. This documentary follows the story of Peter Kennedy and the people whose lives have been affected by his sacking. Ultimately THE TROUBLE WITH ST MARY'S investigates the future of the Catholic Church on the dawn of the 21st century.
