Refreshing in its approach, The Judas Iscariot Lunch presents thirteen Irish ex-­priests who speak candidly about the crossroads they came to with their beliefs, after being ordained and positioned as missionaries in East Asia, the Pacific and South America in the 1960s and 1970s. Through their “camera confessionals” we hear about their questions and the guilt they felt whilst trying to bridge the gap between the theology they were taught at the seminary and what they put into practice in the real world. Their journeys convey a broader understanding of what faith is and how it must move and change with the times.

Director Teresa O Grady Peyton will attend.
