Film: Pray for our Sinners

Venue: Courthouse

Pray for Our Sinners documents Sinéad O’Shea’s return to her hometown, Navan, to explore the impact of the Catholic Church on the community in decades past. Through first hand testimonies, the film reveals the plight of unmarried mothers; the horrors of mother and baby homes and the prevalence of violence against children in Catholic schools. A handful of extraordinary figures chose to resist the pervasive power of the church: a woman who refused to give her baby up for adoption, a 9-year-old boy who dared to speak out against his teachers’ physical abuse; and doctors Mary & Paddy Randles who established a family planning service and campaigned for the abolition of corporal punishment. Run time 81mins.
