In the 1980s, a small gathering of believers settled on a small farm just outside Nowra, NSW. This small group was led by a man called William Kamm, a devout Catholic boy who didn’t like the direction the church was taking. So he gathered some like-minded people, explained the visions he was having, and they decided that it would be best to gather in their own place at their own times, for worship. Kamm was a benevolent leader, loved by all, and confirmed as successor to the papacy by Pope John Paul II himself.
That’s how Kamm would like it to be known. In reality, the Order of St Charbel was a hotbed of abuse and pedophilia, culminating in the arrest of Kamm in the early 2000s. Join Holly and Matthew on this multi-part series examining the cult, their practices and their preacher.
