The Forbidden Call

THE FORBIDDEN CALL is a short documentary that follows Diane Whalen, a wife, mother, and spiritual director who is Catholic to her core. After 30 years in her local parish with increasingly narrow and restrictive ideology, Diane discerns a call — to become a priest in a renewed, more inclusive vision of the Church. With stark opposition from the Vatican, she risks losing the only faith community she has ever known. Change in the Catholic Church is long overdue, but Diane's ministry is one step in the right direction.
