The 80th episode of our series on Sister Cathy, features a profound discussion with Teresa Lancaster, a pivotal figure from the documentary series "The Keepers." Teresa courageously shares her harrowing experiences of abuse within the Catholic Church and her relentless pursuit of justice.

She speaks candidly about the challenges she faced in coming forward, the legal battles she navigated, and the healing process that followed. Her account is a stark reminder of the pervasive and often concealed nature of such abuse, as well as the resilience required to confront it.

Annette, Teresa's daughter, joins the conversation, offering a unique perspective on her collaboration with her mother on the book. She reflects on the impact the book has had on survivors and their families, underscoring the importance of giving voice to those who have suffered in silence.
