Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In 1953, Stephen Kennedy began his study of the priesthood. In 1960, he was sent to Germany to study theology; next, he travelled to Windsor, Canada, for additional study and the honing of his grasp of German. From 1964 to April of 1966, Kennedy was in a German-speaking parish in Toronto, Ontario, followed by a short stint in a parish in Quebec City. Then, came the biggest decision of Kennedy's life ...

After years of careful study, Stephen Kennedy left the Roman Catholic priesthood and turned his back on organized religion forever. Kennedy no longer wanted to be identified with any form of organized religion, whether Eastern or Western. In fact, Kennedy saw leaving organized religion as a departure from Western culture in general-and he has been removed from it ever since.

A Search for There is his enlightened autobiography, conveyed via narrative, story, and poetry-the words of a man who has gone the distance, through education to a personal understanding. Kennedy's journey led him down a path of inner peace and inner freedom. He will never return to his Christian roots, because for Kennedy, he has found something better: he has discovered his own identity and a meaning of life.
