Our Fathers

"Since the dawn of human history, there has been a tendency to stigmatise children whose parents, for one reason or another fail to measure up to the expectations of society, or certain elements of society. No child should be treated less favourably on the grounds of race, religion, nationality, sex or disability, or because of the social status, employment status or marital status of his or her parents. This, quite clearly, includes the children of priests or religious who, like all children are loved by God from the first moment of their conception". - Bishop Kevin Doran, Kevin Doran, Bishop of Elphin and Chairperson of the Council for Life of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. When Vincent Doyle found out that he is the son of a Roman Catholic Priest, he realised that no place existed for people like him, only a world of determined silence on the issue, both in the church and within society. Decided on making a change, Doyle set out on a journey. He had a vision, one of acceptance for the children of priests, globally. This vision took one man the whole way to Rome, to the Vatican and the Pope himself. As that change began to emerge, in the place of silence grew a seed of openness that would cross the world. 'Our Fathers' has been confirmed as the 'first of its kind in history' by the Vatican. Discover a search for acceptance and justice. Hear the true story of conversations, data and change. Come to know a movement that has begun, a movement that will shape history and aid children who have lived and yet to live in time yet to come.
