Auckland bishop convinced priest is woman's father

From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 14 February 2018

After seeing further evidence, the Bishop of Auckland now accepts that a local woman is the daughter of a Catholic priest. Bishop Patrick Dunn says it is the first time he knows of in New Zealand, where the secret child of an apparently celibate priest has been acknowledged in this way. The woman says it's a big step forward for others who find out, like her, that a priest is their father.
