The Judas Iscariot Lunch  

1 x 60' 


The ‘Judas Iscariot Lunch’ is a story about faith, religion, love and life after leaving the priesthood. 13 Irish ex-priests speak candidly about how they came to be missionaries in East Asia, the Pacific and South America in the 1960s and 70s and how they took the brave, honourable and risky decision to leave the active ministry.

“We never saw it like that … we see ourselves as pioneers!”

Immersed in their new situations, these young idealists resonated and developed much broader ideas about God, their own humanity and needs, and about faiths, cultures and economies. This documentary, often funny, sometimes sad, is beautiful, raw and thought-provoking.
