A Life of Faith - In Conversation with Brother Kevin Dobbyn

Andrew Johnstone is a local personality who gained significant attention from the 2020 biopic When The Cows Come Home. In that film Andrew discussed his schooling at Sacred Heart College and his time with the Marist brothers. Recently Andrew has made a formal complaint against two Brothers, resulting in ongoing discussions with the body charged with investigating abuse allegations, The National Office For Professional Standards. From these discussions, Andrew has chosen to produce this piece of content. In this episode Andrew talks with Brother Kevin Dobbyn of the Catholic Marist Order about his vocation, life, death, God, love and the abuse scandal that has engulfed his order. It is a fascinating conversation, as revealing as it is confronting. Note: this piece contains references to abuse and may not be suitable for all listeners. The opinions expressed by the interviewee are not necessarily the opinions of the interviewer or Free FM.
