Peter McDonough

Catholic priest quits church after announcing he is a father.
Father Peter McDonough, a Roman Catholic priest, has quit the Catholic Church after confessing from the pulpit that he has a four-year-old son.
Father McDonough, 54, announced the news during Sunday mass at St Patricks RC Church in Collyhurst, Manchester.
He asked parishioners to sit down before breaking the news. He then announced that he would be stepping down from his role as a priest.
Father McDonough, who had been at St Josephs for 27 years, reached his decision to resign after having several meetings with his bishop, the Rt Rev Terence Brain.
However, church authorities insist that it was very much his decision.

Really impressive, the regularity and consistency, never mind the freshness and the "livingness" of the features.
