Carl Kabat, OMI interviewed on St Louis TV Station

January 11th, 2010

genthumb.ashxCarl Kabat, OMI – jailed for an anti-nuclear protest and released just before Christmas – was interviewed by a St. Louis TV station on December 30th. Fr. Kabat, 76 years old, has spent a total of 18 years behind bars off and on throughout his life. He has been breaking into nuclear weapons facilities since the 1970’s, trying to send a message of peace.

“You have to put yourself where your words are – otherwise you’re just kind of like flapping your jaws…,” said Kabat.

When he’s not behind bars, Father Kabat spends most of his time in the North St. Louis community doing outreach ministry to the poor.
